This week at Inspiration Avenue, Cindy of Cottage Remnant is hosting the challenge. (She’s also been very busy revamping/re-constructing my blog :). For the challenge – Cindy chose Perfectly P!NK, and if you visit her blog you will see why.
This is my finished project. A little different from what I’m used to, but I like how it turned out :). Here is what I did.
Supplies included Studio G ink pads (Wal-Mart for 97 cents,) dabber duos (had these for years – I was surprised they still worked,) a stippling sponge, and a template for the cup. I placed the cup template onto my 5″ x 7″ white cardstock and lightly dabbed first the green ink, then the pink ink inside the cup opening. Then I used the dabber duos to pop some dots on the cup. (All that mess rinses right off the template – no worry.)
Next, I removed the template and made sure my inks were dried by blasting it for a couple seconds with my heat gun. I found the quote online – google searched for coffee quotes :). A simple black 01 micron pen was used to tangle some patterns – florz, some swirls, and maybe some weave.
Then I started adding in some color with copics:
- YG11 mignonette
- RV10 pale pink
- YG13 chartreuse
- RV14 begonia pink
- C3 cool gray
- W5 warm gray
- G00 jade green.
