Mashin' Up with Your Next Stamp!

Happy Friday everyone.. Today we have a new challenge at the Friday Mashup. This week our hostess is Heidi and she's asking us to use Stencils and Mash it up with a Monochromatic color scheme. 

I'm pairing my Mashup card with the Sketch over at Your Next Stamp as well... and I'm using the YNS set Thanks a Latte. This is such a cute coffee themed set! 

I started with a panel of Kraft card stock and I used the Tim Holtz Splatters stencil with some Aged Mahogany Distress Ink to create the coffee cup marks. Then I added a strip of pattern paper along the edge from the Pebbles Happy Day collection. I adhered the kraft panel to a chocolate Chip card base leave a tiny strip showing along the left side. 

All the images and sentiment are stamped in Ranger Archival ink in the color Potting Soil. I stamped the sentiment onto a strip of kraft and matted it on a piece of Chocolate Chip and added it along the lower edge. Then I stamped the coffee cup image onto a piece of kraft card stock and die cut it out with the coordinating dies and added some shading with my Copic Markers. 

We all know coffee is a magical elixir lol, so I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the coffee for a bit of sparkle. It needed something extra so I added some Kraft colored enamel dots from the Teresa Collins Hello My Name is collection. 

Be sure to head over to the Friday Mashup blog and see what the other Design Team members created with this fun challenge. The Linky tool will close on Wednesday June 24th @6pm EST. The YNS sketch challenge is open until June 25th.
