Morning Coffee


How true is this fun sentiment from Love Monsters?  Or is it just me?  Please tell me I have monster friends out there.  Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge is BACK!  Yay!  I loves me some sketch challenges and I'm so happy Taylor is back at it with fun new layouts.  I started by stamping this sweet little coffee monster in Memento Tuxedo Black on both Choice Snow White cardstock and Country Drive paper from Echo Park. I colored her with Copic markers and paper pieced the image together. The little scallop strip is the Small Scallop Border Die, which I trimmed to about 1/4" thick.  I added a fun little white bow with a glue dot and 3 Hot Pink Rhinestones along the bottom.  A little stitching and it's done.


Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Karen
