Today is the beginning of a new challenge over at the Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge blog! This week's challenge is called Picture Perfect, to use the following picture as inspiration for a card.
I stuck pretty closely to the photo for my layout and had so much fun putting this together. I chose a patterned paper that was a little on the bright side, so I added a vellum panel to soften it. A washi border strip grounded my images and provided them with a "table"! :) I paper pieced these fun coffee cups, steam, and coffee from Paper Smooches' Hot Concoctions and Cyber Cafe stamp sets and created my sentiment using the Alphadot set. The mustache on the guy mug is from the Hot Concoctions set and I added wiggle eyes to finish him. My gal mug just had to have a face too, so I added lips and eyes from the Swanky Snowdudes set and just used a fine marker to add eyelashes. I just loved the soft border around the inspiration photo, so I added my own dotted scallop border using a fine marker. Love it! :)
Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out my project! I hope you take the time to visit the SPARKS Challenge blog and submit your own creation! :)
