What's Brewing? Stamplorations and the Coffee Lovers Winter/Fall blog hop

My final entry in the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop was a blast to create.  I layered and layered and layered Distress Oxide inks until I achieved the background shown.  Then I stamped and colored the Stamplorations petite images.  I punched them out and layered them on an up-cycled ribbon.

I used this month's card sketch from Stick It Down as inspiration.

Up close of my images.
