Happy Caffeinated 4th
Happy 4th of July 2019 everyone! I originally made this card several months ago for the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop but I got busy and forgot to post it. I decided to save this post for the actual Independence Day.
I made the background by taping off diagonal lines as I buffed Oxide inks on. I then used white pigment ink over a star-patterned stencil and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. For the central image I used small eye shadow applicators to apply Oxides over a coffee image stencil and added some gold star sequin accents.
