The Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #147 evoked numerous ideas for me. I decided to eliminate the floral ideas and go with stamps and dies that I've had for a while but never used. I was slow in getting on the coffee bandwagon in card making because I usually watch trends for a while before purchasing materials.
My plan was to use coffee colors. When I created my own DSP, things changed. Using clip art that I enhanced and printed on cardstock resulted in the encircled coffee beans and the tumbling cups. I was unable to change the colors on the tumbling cups so used them as inspiration for the blocks on the card.
Take a look at the AHSC blog and join the challenges!
