Card Chain Challenge swap

Last month I decided to re-join the girls at the Card Chain Challenge - to make and send a card to someone in a far off lands.... this card went to Marga in Spain.
I used the sketch as a guide to my layout, stamped, watercoloured and fussy cut my coffee and flowers image and used a smooched Distress Ink background with matching card strips behind the image.  To finish the card I added a stamped 'friends' sentiment on a stitched die cut label. 
I am also posting to Stamplorations Never Ending challenge as I used the Coffee and Dog Roses stamp.  Thanks for visiting, I really appreciate it, happy card making.



  1. Love that smooshed background, Robyn! The coffee and flowers look so pretty against it!

  2. Superior Smooshing! Sometimes the simplest techniques are the hardest to master and this background is beautiful proof .....perfect color sequence and "Just Enough" application. Wonderful card, Robyn!

  3. Love the inky background for the pretty cup and flower arrangment - beautiful card for CCC!

  4. Sweet card Robyn. Love that gorgeous watercoloured background. Perfect backdrop for your coffees and flowers. xx


Thank you for taking the time to comment, all encouragement and inspiration is very welcome. May your day be a happy and extra special one, cheers Robyn
