I needed to give metallics another go around. I was not entirely pleased with my first attempt with aluminum foil so my mantra....try, try again. This time I grabbed my new toys (alcohol inks) and created this splashed coffee background on my aluminum foil. I then ran it through the cuttlebug with the swirls folder. The main image is from the coffee set by Crafty Secrets. I then searched for the perfect sentiment.....never far from my desk is the "essential sentiments" set by My Favorite Things. Perfect! I colored with copics then I layered it up using my nestabilities. (I think I mentioned before my love for these). I alcohol inked my hardware buckle and large brads to match.
The "icing on the cake" is my coffee foam. White liquid pearls, swirled with a drop of espresso alcohol ink then glitter for that finishing "sprinkles" touch.
I am much happier with these results, sometimes creating is EASY, other times it is a true process of trial and error. Today was a trial and error day. All part of learning.....I love it!
