Lawn Fawn cups--thanks for picking me up

Hello!

I thought I'd share a card I made that was intended for publication but due to life getting "in the way", I missed the deadline (shame coz I actually like it!)

I'm also going to be putting it in to the SSS Wednesday Challenge this week which is to give THANKS/THANKSGIVING, as well as the current Lawnscaping Challenge theme of Thinking of you (as it's a thanks for encouragement/help card).


To start out, I took a piece of Neenah Desert Storm Cardstock and folded it into a card.  I then stamped multiple Lawn Fawn cups from the Love you a Latte set, all over the cardstock using Hero Arts Wet Cement Ink.  (to save time I used several stamps on the one acrylic block and just kept turning it and twisting it to adjust the angle :))

Next I stamped and diecut around 15 more cups, this time using Copic-friendly cardstock and Black Dye ink from My Favourite Things.

I then coloured them in with copics :)

Finally I used a sentiment from I have no idea where (if you know, drop me a comment :)) because I loved the double meaning of the coffee/caffeine pick-up and the friendship one :)

Then I adhered the cups so they 'overlapped' their tone-on-tone stamped versions!

Hope you like :)

Have a crafty day!
