Happiness is a cup of coffee – Lynette Jacobs

Lynette here, welcome to the blog today. I am sharing my take on the August mood board. I used a photo Kobus took of me while we were on vacation and enjoying coffee.  I am also using the Penelope Dee Fleure collection that is the perfect fit for the colour challenge.

The Mood Board:

Dusty Attic Products:

Coffee Bean stencil


Coffee cup

Happiness is a cup of coffee
Some close up images:

I prepared my background and then applied Distress Oxide Ground Espresso through the Coffee Bean Stencil to diagonal corners of the page.  I stamped and cut flowers and leaves onto matching cardstock and fussy cut it make embellishment clusters.

I dry brushed the title in white acrylic paint and then coloured it with Distress Oxide Victorian Velvet and Ground Espress.

I applied white acrylic paint to the stamens to complete the embellishment clusters.

I adore this “coffee cup” chipboard and I heat embossed it in Lindy’s Byzantine Bronze embossing powder.
