Shaking Good Coffee


A new week. Is it me, or are weeks flying by like the blink of an eye? Maybe it's the coffee I drink.

I only drink one, maybe 1-1/2 cups in the morning. They don't help me with energy but it is comforting to wake up with a hot, cozy drink. This one you can shake for some extra happy!!

I tried very hard to finish this before yesterday for the STV weekly challenge. Boo. Missed it. My best isn't fast enough. Is there a snail pace challenge I can start following?

If you look on Pinterest (or maybe Google) you can find all kinds of templates. I found this one and printed it on cardstock. It's REALLY large, like 7x6-1/2 inches, even bigger than an A4 card? I didn't feel like shrinking, saving, reprinting, so it is what it is. A massive, giant coffee drink!

I used a ruler and French curve rulers to cut the center of the cup out, adhered acetate to the back, used 1/4 inch adhesive foam and filled it with sequins and seed beads. I stamped some beans and distressed the edges of the panel and used Copics to add shading on the cup and shadow. The cardbase is run through a swiss dot folder twice because of the size. Inside for the coffee color I used distress inks. I glued some sequins to the back and the rest fell to the bottom. There are mini hearts, mini stars and several neutral color sequins in there. Wrapped twine around it and called it 3 days LOLLOLololOOlol! Yup, I'm a slow slow poke.
