friend to friend SPARKS challenge


So I couldn't resist and bought the Paper Smooches Hot Concoctions set and wanted to play along with the SPARKS challenge (use photo below as inspiration).  So I went for woodgrain and orange.  I used the current PTI Make It Monday technique of the brayer, first on the Tim Holtz woodgrain embossing folder and then on a piece of water color paper with the PTI In Bloom impression plate, obviously I had an extra one from today's other card.  I die cut out a take out coffee cup holder with PTI Fillable Frames #11, which was one more fun layer of texture for the Moxie Fab World "Textured to Perfection" challenge.



Materials: Paper Smooches Hot Concoctions, PTI Fillable Frames #4 sentiment,  PTI Fillable Frames #11 die, vellum, May Arts natural burlap string, Versafine black ink, Tim Holtz Distress inks fired brick, ripe persimmons, gathered twigs, PTI kraft card stock, recycled coffee holder

Oh, look--it's a camper van!! (Have you seen the new VW camper van LEGO set? My kids are all a-gaga over it.) Love how you interpreted it as a pair of lattes. The woodgrain and coffee cup holder add tons of texture. Love it!
