Today I'm sharing another card made with beautiful Graciellie Designs Digital Stamps. This card features her newly released "Happy Moments" set.
I printed my jar of flowers on coffee stained paper (tutorial below, and colored it with watercolor markers added a few highlights with prismacolor pencils and a white gel pen.
Next I stamped a crackle background stamp (Stampin' Up) in walnut stain distress oxide and added a burlap string bow and tiny flower cut with the tattered floral die (Tim Holtz).
Here’s how I make coffee stained paper —
Supplies: Typing Paper, Instant Coffee, Water, Paint Brush
Step One: Dissolve 3 tsp. instant coffee in 1 cup hot water
Step Two: Paint side one of your typing paper with coffee and allow to dry in the hot sun
Step Three: Paint the second side and allow to dry
Step Four: Return to side one and add some coffee stains in the center of your paper and allow to dry
Step Five: Iron paper (without steam) on both sides to flatten
Inside I added a sentiment from the same stamp set, cut with a tag die and embellished with a burlap string bow and a smaller version of the jar of flowers like the front.
