i have been burning the candle at both ends and thought this stamp set from Artful INKables was perfect so i made myself a plaque:

I started with a wood plaque from Michaels and painted the edges with Faded Jeans distress crackle paint.  next i covered the front with a page from the Blue Awning K&Co paper pad.  I used another piece across the front.  i inked the edges for a distressed look.  The 2 smaller panels are done using a Technique Junkies technique called Brayered Brilliance with a stamp from the same set as the main image and sentiment (the only other MUST HAVE caft publication!!!)

the stamped images from Artful Inkables Warm Drinks for Cold Days set are very simple – i stamped them with distress ink, cut them out with Nesties and then rubbed them with more distress inks and my foam blending tool.  i added a few of my exclusive chocolate sparkle pezabling acrylic squares and DONE!

so there you have it – my mantra:

“with enough coffee anything is possible!”

i hope you have a wonderful weekend planned!!!!
