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 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!
