But First Coffee Two Toned Stenciling


Hello there!!! I am  back with another post for The Crafter’s Workshop. I adore the Mini Floral Frenzy stencil… Using stencils creates gorgeous backgrounds in minutes! For this background, I simply blended two colors of distress inks thru the stencil using the Clarity Stencil brushes. I love using the  Clarity Stencil brushes for this particular look because it allows you to get good, even coverage with no harsh lines at very easily!  The results are light and airy.  If I wanted to put a heavy coating of ink down, I would use my Ranger blending tools.


So naturally, I turned this into a coffee themed card! Normally, I think of browns when I think of coffee. So how fun to use these unconventional colors to create a coffee card.. Why not, right?????  I Copic colored and die cut some of the images from the Oh Frappe stamp set and coordinating die set and adhered them to the card. The sentiment is from the same Oh Frappe stamp set.


Easy peasy, right??? Thanks so much for stopping by today!!!!
