Rule the world

It's day two of the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  Today I am using another mix of stamps.



This is Disco Donna from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps.  I love her.  She's sassy and sexy and feisty in that self-assured "Don't Mess With Me" kind of way.  When I colored her in that red dress the other night, I just thought she just looked ready to take on the world.

But how do you do that without coffee??  Seriously.

So I gave her a cup.

I stamped Donna with Fine Linen ink on a piece of Fine Linen cardstock from Papertrey Ink.  She's colored with Polychromos pencils.  I altered her hand just a bit to make her hold a cup of coffee, then when finished, carefully taped my deckled rectangle die down and a little bit at a time, die cut the it leaving her hand and sleeve area uncut.  I cut those out with my Penblade.  I quickly drew a small cup that would fit in her hand and also cut that out.

My background is pretty simple.  A Kraft card base, a black mat, and a strip of corrugated paper from the Brutus Monroe Midway paper pack.  Gotta tie in that coffee theme.  It's a cardboard coffee sleeve!

My sentiment is from Lil' Inker Designs' Snarky Sentiments.  I stamped it with Versafine then cut it into strips and added it to my card with a bit of 3M foam tape.

Thanks for stopping in!
Have a Grande Day.
