Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - Day 5




I'm up on the Hero Arts blog today using Kelly's Seattle set but I'm also featuring a different Seattle project using the Destination Seattle stamp, here on my blog:


Even though the stamp has such modern images, I tend to go with minimal coloring and distress inking the edges.  This time I cropped the image pretty small and used my corner chomper.   

It seemed so fitting to have coffee patterned paper teamed up with the Destination Seattle stamp after all, Seattle is home to Starbucks.

I was inspired by Retro sketches:


and of course...the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!


Hero Arts is a Super Sponsor and is offering up a $25 Hero Arts Shopping Spree...so why don't you play along and link up?

Make sure you pop over to the see my other Hero Arts project!
