Faux Pottery, Foil and Fun

Today I've created a fun card using a sweet Design from Skipping Stones Designs.I wanted to make a card for a friend that would just be  little blessing.  Lorrie has been my friend for 33 years and when we lived in the same town, a favorite thing to do would be to just sit and drink coffee and talk about the daily drama of being a young wife and mother.   The kids have grown up and we have  lived  on opposite coasts for the last 15 years, but the friendship remains.  
I wanted this coffee cup to look like beautiful Mexican pottery, 
Skipping Stones Designs had just the right stamp! 

 Here is the card and after if you are interested, the process :

I stamped my card on Heavenly White Cardstock  and colored with alcohol marker.  I added lots and lots of ink and then I added Twinkling H2O's and   Micro beads.  This beautiful heavy paper held up no problem, no pilling !

On the coffee cup body I used a matte finish coating and for the decoration I used  liquid crystal  to give it that pottery look

Stamp Products I used:

The  sentiment

 The coffee cup

I'm really looking forward to mailing this card , I know it will make my friend smile.  Maybe she will mail me back her  wonderful Chocolate Chip Cookies!
Thanks for stopping by!
