STAMPlorations, a reminder

Back again, this time to share a OL card for a reminder of the ongoing Theme/Sketch Challenge over at STAMPlorations.

Not my usual style but as the latest challenge over at Less is More is 'Beverage' I thought I would stretch myself. 
I used this sketch for my layout

but perhaps you are more of a mixed media person so our theme is right up your alley.

My image was a freebie digi 'Latte for Two', that Shery shared a long time ago but there are similar stamps available here, which I coloured with my pencil crayons after first stamping a couple of hearts from the Balloons and Banners set. My sentiment was computer generated and the background, a Tribal Weave stencil, inked through with Ground Espresso DI, after first masking off the image.

That's all there is to it really, for more fab inspiration check out the rest of the team here where you will also find all the Ts and Cs.
Don't forget to use my discount code when you order stamps from the STAMPlorations shop.

I'd like to join in over at :-

"Less is More"
One Layer - BEVERAGE

                                                       Thanks Sarah for the reminder!
