Papercraft Star Challenge #12

This week's challenge at Papercraft Star was a photo inspiration challenge. The photo was of a French Press coffeemaker. Don't ask me how I know what that is, because I am NOT a coffee drinker. :) Yikes! All those groans I just heard were deafening. hee hee Sorry guys, but I just don't have a taste for the beans. However, I do like tea, so I decided to take my project in that direction.
The digital image is from KLM Digistamps. After I printed out the image I colored it with Prisma Colored pencils and used odorles mineral spirits to blend the pencil color. Then I covered the tea pot with Glossy Accents.

Paper: Recollections cardstock, October Afternoon, white cardstock, DCWV
Stamp: KLM Digistamps Rose Tea Pot, sentiments were computer generated
Inks+: Tumbled Glass and Worn Lipstick Distress ink, Ranger Glossy Accents, Crytstal Stickles
Tools: Nestabilities Standard Circles large (S4-114), Classic Scalloped Circles Large (S4-124), Labels Eight (S5-019), and Classic Ovals Large (S4-110)
Miscellaneous: Offray ribbon, Recollections Adhesive pearls

The link is open for submissions for this challenge until 12:00 p.m. EST Saturday, then voting begins. I see we have lots of new players this week and since I know all you coffee drinkers have the energy to make a card, come play along with us this week. :) The more the merrier! AND . . . there's a prize this week-- a year's membership to Your Paper Pantry, one of my favorite places to get together with other crafters.
