Cuppa Cuppa Coffee

It must be Wednesday ~ I am back today with a couple quick cards using the new Sheena Douglass~ Sheena's A Little Bit Scenic - French 50s Cafe
I love how Crafter's Companion has so many great stamp artists we get to use and share with you.
 I just loved this cup when I seen it, so I decided to add several together and make a matted design.I used my Spectrum Noir markers  and have a combo below I used on my second card.
This card was matted several times with a distressed kraft paper and black. I used some Prima flowers  glittered brads for the centers, bling swirl, and the tag are all from my stash. I pulled out one of my favorite bakers twine from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
My second card is below

I used my Spectrum Noir markers to color these  coffee cups
 These are the colors I chose to color my cups with,I also wanted to share a close up of my many cups aligned.
I started with darker brown Kraft paper as my card base and also used to mat my image.After cutting a die cut frame I left my paper in the die and inked with my Memento Pad - New Sprout
Ribbon is from my  stash of Really Reasonable Ribbon.
 Hope you enjoyed my two designs, I am always so glad I get to share my projects with you.
