A friend of coffee...

Hello there!

I'm up on the TGF blog today and I'm back again with another caffeinated cutie from the big Coffee Bean stamp kit. This time around I was drawn to the Bean wearing a fashionable, wide brimmed summer hat with her carry-out holding a Venti cup for her and her bestie. It was that idea of her surprising a friend with their favorite blend that had me going to my TGF digi collection for the perfect sentiment. I love this large 'A Friend of Coffee' sentiment with its playful script and new that it would look great decorating the window of one of the shops in the digi Storefronts set. So once again I stamped the Coffee Bean first, stamped and cut out a mask for her, then printed the digital background, which was enlarged to fill the entire card front, right over top. When the mask is peeled away it leaves her exiting her favorite coffee shop, looking bright eyed and perky for the rest of her day. With so much of the background being that store front, it really didn't require a whole lot of crazy coloring to complete. And the Beans are some of the smallest characters on The Farm so she was pretty quick to color too. Which made completing this card a breeze!  :)

Stay crafty my friends!
