Oh, so worth the wait..

Have you ever stood I line, just dying for that first cup of coffee? The fabulous aroma of roasted coffee beans permeating the air? Addiction. Bliss.


Well that is how this poor guy feels right now, standing in the pouring rain waiting for his turn at the counter.

I found a new card challenge called the card concept. The card you create not only must follow the theme... This week. "COFFEE" ... It also must conform to a style. I picked Shabby Chic and Vintage and created this card with those elements.

I stamped the Tim Holtz Life possibilities umbrella man on watercolor paper with distress markers and cut him out. The central perk is a digital image I printed, masked and distressed.


The coffee Line sign I created and printed on my cameo. Lastly I distressed strips of newspaper with vintage photo and mounted with an old button and twine. It is representative of a newspaper stand outside the coffee shop.

For the background I created raindrops on white cardstock and printed with a silver sketch pen on the cameo. I then applied a mix of pumice stone and stormy sky distress inks, then lastly I spritzed with weathered wood and black markers. I used a black Bazzill card stock as the base.

I am submitting this for challenge #10 A Coffee Theme
