AAA Cards Challenge #175 : One Layer + coffee

This fortnight it's the dreaded ONE layer card, plus the option to use something coffee.

It's Michelle's choice.

I've used the Katzelkraft stamps (Les Pingouins), And I stamped it with Gina K amalgam ink. the sentiment is from Joy Crafts (6410/0469) and I stamped that with Versafine Clair ink.

I chose the penguin as it really doesn't need colouring and it's holding a cup of something warm, I see coffee ;-). But I added some colour anyway with my markers, fully realizing it might seep through the card base to the inside. But I didn't want to leave it all B&W.
The shading under the penguin is so faint, I don't think it shows up on the photo.

For more information, or to play along the AAA Cards Challenge, see this.

As I thought it would fit the Cheers challenge at Less is More I shall enter it there too, there's a dt card that uses coffee, I don't have many if any drinking related stamps.

For the Less is More Challenge, see this.
The Time Out Challenge is also about coffee, so see this if you're interested.

  6. Such a cute card. Like the placement of the image with the sentiment and the shading underneath gives this grounding-I can see it! I think adding a touch of colour was a good call and who cares if you can see it underneath! Thanks for joining Time Out x
