Welcome to yet another day of the Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop!
Leftovers! I always end up with a gazillion of them and most of them get tossed into a box to make up ‘someday’. I’ve looked carefully at my calendar and ‘Someday’ just wasn’t put on there this year. Huh! So I decided to ‘Carpe’ dem leftovers from THIS card a couple of days ago and use them up TODAY. : )
See the ‘steam’ and the butterfly? They’re from the cutaways from the diecut heart doily on that previous card. I just ran a gray copic over them and put some sparkle on the butterfly and they make great accents! And that teapot/coffee pot? Sometimes you have something you want to use and the colors just don’t match up. (See pic below for before and after.) I just pressed it into Versamark ink, poured copper embossing powder over it and heat embossed it. I had to do it twice and then use a marker to draw in a couple of lines, but I love how it turned out!
