GS86 Coffee Filters and Some Exciting News!


Keeping with this months Coffee/Tea/Cocoa Theme, the GS86 Spicy Supply Challenge is Coffee Filters.  I can honestly tell you I have never reached for a Coffee Filter before when creating my cards, but after playing around with different techniques and ideas, I'll surely be reaching for them in place of Tissue Paper!

After many attempts to create something with the Coffee Filters, I decided to spray mine with Ranger Butterscotch Colorwash, crumple and dry with a Heat Gun.  Once dry, I adhered it to a piece of card stock that I ran through my Xyron, smooshed out the wrinkles a bit then stamped the Damask randomly in Black Archival.  I applied Rusty Hinge DI over the raised area, then spritzed with Ranger Perfect Pearls Mist.  The image and sentiment are from Stampotique.
