613 Avenue Create Challenge Community

Good Morning everyone! I am so excited to announce that I have joined the team at 613 Avenue Create as a Resident Designer! Chana and Kathi are incredible and you will just love their blog community!  You can check out this weekly challenge community and enter the challenge  here.  This week's challenge is Anything Goes with an optional twist. 

Here's my project to inspire you for this challenge:

The stamp set used here is Tim Holtz's new Fresh Brewed blueprint.  I am addicted to anything and everything coffee so I just love this set and the Bigz die as well (see my projects here).  The background was created with Ranger Distress ink and Tim Holtz's layering stencils using the mono print technique which you can check out in my tutorial here.  I also used the layering stencils to add drip rings to the background for that true coffee stain feel.  The focal images were watercolored with Ranger Distress Inks and adhered to the background along with the burlap with my Xyron 1.5" Sticker Maker and Xyron Mega Runner! The encouragement sentiment is from Tim's Idea-ology line.  I also framed the background with Kraft Core Card Stock cut from Tim's Postage Stamp die and sanded to reveal the kraft core. 

So come on by the 613 Avenue Community Blog and enter this week's challenge!

                 I am also entering this card in the Totally Tilda Challenge #118 Tea/Coffee
