Java Great Day

Hi Everyone!

Good to see you again. There have been lots of updates and new features added to the blog lately. I encourage you to have a look around at the various new page tabs up there at the top and see if anything sparks your interest. I've been working really hard lately to try to give you a wider variety of content.
For today, I have a card to share with you. I started with a Fine Linen (PTI) card base and added a layer of Scarlet Jewel followed by Simply Chartreuse. Before adding the layer of Chartreuse, I used my mini scoring board to add some texture with some score lines. I added more texture with an embossing folder on the Fine Linen piece in the center.

I used SSS "What's Brewing" stamp set. I stamped the mug from the set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and then used Prismacolor pencils to color it in. I wanted the mug to look like it was sort of painted and grungy, so I used some blending sticks and a little baby oil to accomplish that. I stamped the sentiment with Worn Lipstick Distress ink onto a separate piece of white card stock and then cut it out and added it to the center of the mug. I cut the entire mug out and added it to a piece of white card stock. I used Berry Sorbet from PTI as a final color element behind the image panel and the scalloped edge as well.
For finishing touches, I added a white gel pen border and some gold stickles.
