Love Coffee

Swoon, not a word I use very often, if at all and considering Jason Statham and Robert Downey Jr are busy doing something in a place called Hollywood I had to rethink my approach to the CASology challenge.  Now I'm pretty sure I'm not alone in 'swooning' over a cup of coffee with its distinctive rich aroma... and that was the basis for todays card.



Now this bunny swoons over coffee so much he's dived in ears first to look for more at the bottom, leaving his own bottom on show!

The background was created with distress inks onto an acrylic block then spritz with water and stamped directly onto the card.  The coffee cup has been overworked, simply because the first layer dried to a shocking neon pink and wouldn't look out of place at an 80's rave so I got up this morning and toned it down quite a bit.  The 'coffee' is part of a bigger sentiment that I just masked out and inked up coffee, 'love' is a die.  To finish I added a generous amount of Stickles to his tail and some little pink hearts - not to his bottom of course, to the side of the card :)

  5. Coffee swooning is done at my house nearly every morning :) Nothing could be cuter than the bunny diving into the cup and I'd say he has a caffeine addiction perhaps! Adorable image, and a fun card to swoon over!
