Hello and happy first day of October!!!
New month, new challenge at The Ton Challenge!!!
This month we have a Caffeine Mood Board for you.
Effie found some fabulous pictures and created this mood board for us! As I saw the board, the blue latte one caught my eyes right away! The opaque blue coffee with white cream in a glass mug and blue purple flowers on it placed on a wooden table…. so pretty. And those are what I represented on my card.
I started off by creating my background. I used gold and brown Gansai Tambi watercolor to color a mixed media paper panel. After it was dry I gold heat embossed Freestyle Stripes on it. The flowers from Always Cherry Blossoms were gold heat embossed on some Bristol Smooth paper, colored using Zig Brush markers and cut with coordinating dies. To represent the glass mug with blue latte, I decided to go with some clear acetate. I gold heat embossed the cup from Tea Party set and cut it using the coordinating die. I then colored the back of the cup using Pearl Turquoise acrylic paint and white alcohol ink, A cup of blue latte done :)! I narrowed down the brown panel, added thin strips of Adhesive Foil paper gold on both sides and mounted it flat on my gray cardbase. I then foam mounted the cherry blossoms and the cup. The sentiment is from Magnificent Magnolias. I stamped it in Dark Roast on a strip of white cardstock with a mat of gold foil and foam mounted it onto the card. The finishing touch were some Medallion Gold sequins.
That’s it from me! Hope I was able to inspire you to play along!
