My Cup runneth over...Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

2017 fall hop 

I managed to design one more quick coffee card last night.  I have long wanted to create a card with a coffee cup ring.  I do not own such a stamp so I improvised.  I inked up the bottom of a glass with a little water involved and just twisted the glass on a piece of paper.  I supposed that is about as realistic as I can get.  I did use a stamp for the splatter.

Once I inked up the stamp, I added a little water to it and it made an actual splat!  So again pretty realistic except I was using Ground Espresso Distress ink instead of coffee.  I used my MISTI to perfectly position the sentiment in the middle of my ring and stamp it several times for good coverage.

Close ups of my handy work:
