Let’s get caffeinated with Erica

Hello Tuesday!

Erica here, today it’s my turn back on the Trinity Stamps blog.

This card is another coffee themed one, using the Coffee With Character stamp set.

These images I coloured with Copics, in a no-line technique with the help of Ink On 3 fade out ink.

Admittedly, my no-line colouring can do with a lot of improvement. It’s not something I find easy at all. I completely over-saturated some of the images and couldn’t get the shading the way I envisioned it. Despite these mishaps I had fun while I did it so there is that and without practicing, nobody gets better, right?

I used the coordinating diecuts for the images to cut them out and set them aside for the time being. That croissant made me hungry though and I’ve been dreaming of hot, fresh and flaky croissants ever since.

For the background I used a dark grey card stock which I embossed with the help of a star embossing folder. This piece I also cut down using a scalloped rectangular diecut, to give it more interest. With the panel embossed and cut, I adhered it to a white card base with foam tape.

All the little images I adhered to the card using different height foam tape. It’s nice with different heights to bring more dimensions to a card, at least I think so. A small banner with the sentiment ‘let’s get caffeinated’ was added to the card along with some iridescent sequins. This was put together using the word stamps from Caffeinated Sentiments set.

That finishes this card!

This is not the most exciting card I have ever made. Hand on my heart, it is important to be honest with yourself about your creations. I also think it’s important to show that not every single card I make is great. Because they really aren’t ALL that great, promise, I have days when nothing works and everything looks like I’m on Day1 of card making…! However, we all like different looks and techniques, and with no-line colouring being one I haven’t used for Trinity Stamps before, I thought why not?

Anyway, enough jibber-jabbering from me for today, see you all soon again!
Lots of love and happy crafting from Erica
