Coffee Anyone???

...I just cannot leave those colour alone...coffee and cream...brilliantly lush paints by Kaisercraft with a little bit of Traditional Tan Claudine Hellmuth paint thrown on for good measure.



This is a Maya Road chipboard piece which was covered with Terra and then stamped into with texture stamps and then heat gunned to within an inch of its existence...hence the warty toad look I have achieved LOL The paints were splodged over the top using Cut & Dry and then gold Precious Metal paint applied over the bumpy bits.




The butterfly is made from Grungeboard and the leaves and flowers are Grungepaper, all coloured with Distress Inks and then curled to add depth. I added Rock Candy Stickles to the butterfly...and these images are Studio 490 stamps (yes...for a change LOL) The word is made up of Maya Road "Noah" chip letters..Idea-ology added and finally, a beautiful little egg timer charm which was kindly donated by Andrea...the whole piece needed that something extra and this was her idea...xx

Thanks for looking...have a great day!
