I've been working on an ATC for Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge. This week Jenn has set the challenge of Crazy for Coffee. Knew I should have bought that coffee bean embossing folder!! So short of coffee themed stash I went to the kitchen.
Tonight friends I have decided to build my ATC from coffee filters. Natural colour ones of course. If anyone is interested, including me if I check back for tips, stick your filter layers together before you cut. Coffee filter paper stretches when wet so I cut, stuck and then had to cut again. I think I went with 6 layers and am quite pleased with the thickness and strength of my ATC.
I forgot to take a picture before I added my letters but while my stuck together layers were still wet I added some instant coffee powder. Doesn't that give a nice mottled effect. And a little Eau de Kaffe as well. I was going to die cut letters but couldn't find the size I liked and then decided I wanted big letters. I fussy cut from brown card and went around the ATC edge with VersaMagic Jumbo Java chalk ink. Did you see that? Jumbo Java = Big Coffee. Yeah?
I checked the stash for a suitably crazy looking subject and found Rabbit from Stampotique. The coffee is coming to get you!! He looks so worried. I stamped him in Jumbo Java, just to keep with the theme.
