This was my third single layer card... the one that had to have a coffee theme. I stamped the Stampabilities House Mouse image and colored with Prisma Pencils, blended with odor free mineral spirits, then painted the mug with a couple of coats of Diamond Glaze, which really gave it a shine. I stamped the Stampabilities sentiment and the little coffee bean from a Hero Arts Clear set in Chocolate Chip. I sponged Creamy Caramel around the edges, and also Ranger Distress Ink in Antique Linen. For the scalloped border I used my corner rounder without the guard on it. I used a camel color ribbon with a cranberry colored thread woven through it. I added some shimmer with my clear glitter gel pen... the wafts, coffee beans and the little mouse' toenails, eyes and nose have just a dot.
I hope you like this trio of single layer cards. Never have I done any more difficult challenge than this! Oh how I longed for a few layers!!! LOL! But I did not cheat and I feel I learned a few things along the way... and that's what a challenge is all about!
I will be gone for a week and a half at least, so please don't give up on me... I'll be back and will be chompin at the bit to stamp and share again! Thanks for looking!
