Liquid Sanity | National Coffee Week + Giveaway



If you've been following me for any amount of time, you know that I love my coffee!  Well, Tuesday was National Coffee Day and there is a hop over on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog.  There are 31 Super Sponsors that are hopping with us so a total of 32 stops with prizes!  You don't want to miss out.

I'm playing along with the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog and their National Coffee Week but I'm doing it on my blog too!  For each of my National Coffee Week posts, leave a comment for a chance to win!  I'll be drawing two names from across all posts and comments, they will win a $20 Gift Card to the Super Sponsor that I feature in that post.  Commenting to close on Thursday, October 8th at 11:59 pm with winners being announced here on my blog Friday, October 9th. 

Although I had lofty goals with the number of projects I wanted to make for the entire week, I'm cautiously optimistic that things will work out.  Today's post I'm featuring

Rubbernecker Stamps - Campbell
STAMPlorations - Coffee Happy
Funky Fossil Designs - Caffeine Buzz
Kat Scrappiness - Wonky Wavy Stitched Rectangles

Here's how I was inspired!



I did some tone on tone stencil work on the base.  I struggled with where I was going to put the main image but then thought to use the Kat Scrappiness rectangle directly onto the stenciled panel.  I trimmed it down a bit and mounted it onto a pale peach A2 panel.


The Rubbernecker Stamps image did most of the 'coloring' for me with the shading that it already incorporated into the design.  Here are the copics I used:

E93 | E95 | YR02
G0000
W00 | W0 | W1 | W3

Honestly I didn't factor in the wonky stitching making it a bit of a challenge to find the perfect fitting sentiment.  SCORE!  That one from STAMPloration is fabulous, don't you agree?


Want an extra chance to win?  Leave a comment over on the Coffee Loving Cardmaker's blog post HERE and come back and let me know you left a comment.  Here are the direct links to the supplies I used for today's project:
