Newton and Coffee

Happy Saturday!

Are you excited about the first day of Spring?  I am!  BUT it's snowing today.  What a perfect day to stay inside, drink coffee, and craft, right?   *wink*




In the spirit of things, I wanted to share a coffee themed card I created inspired by the Spring Coffee Blog Hop and My Favorite Things challenges.

The Color Challenge has Daffodil listed..a nice warm yellow.  But I just wasn't feeling the yellow...needed to be a bit warmer for me.  I added some orange tones with the yellow, for Newton.

  




My interpretation of the sketch is a bit loose...but it works.     I took some of the smaller images and stamped them in MFT Sour Apple dye ink across the back of the panel, so that Newton (representing the circle) had a base to sit on.  




I added clear Spectrum Noir Glitter brush to the coffee mugs, and the sleeve on Newton's cup.   


I colored Newton and his cup in Copics (YR20, YR14, YR32, R20, E41, E43, G02, G07, G20, 0, C0, C2).

The twine is from when I ordered my stamps.  The packaging was wrapping in this wonderful orange and white twine.  Perfect addition don't you thing?   I also added a few enamel dots from my stash to help balance the image.  The card base is made with MFT Kraft card stock.  I don't have any Biscotti card stock (yet), so I made due with what I had on hand.  

Since Newton is so cute (and cuddly), I'm also entering this card into Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.
