Coffee and Friends

I got my box of new goodies this week and did a wee bit of playing yesterday.
I am loving this new Eastern Elegance DSP and the Beautifully Baroque embossing folder!
The background is created by masking the coffee cup and then I stamped ink off before putting it to the background.  Wasn't quite the effect I was looking for - but it's okay.

The sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches - I opted not to do a square card because of a lack of envelopes.
I've been extremely busy - which is why I haven't had as many posted as I'd like - and I'm not done with the busyness yet; there's still lots to do before the end of the month.  Including packing up my entire music room.  I got some new instruments this week and after unpacking to look at them, I have to repack them, along with everything else, to move across town.  Fun times!

 I have also been doing some other "artsy" stuff.  This is something I finished last night in my BIG found paper book.  (can you see the "inside" of one of the paper bags we got our Make and Takes in at Convention last year?  I can't wait to doodle on it.  Anyway - I've used reindeers and the aqua painter  for this page in my book - it's done on piece of watercolour paper.  I always include at least one page of watercolour paper in my found paper books! 

I would never profess to be an artist - but I do have fun pretending!  
Hope you find a bit of creating time in your day.  Thanks for stopping by!

Love that sketchy look on your card! No easy task moving all of that musical equipment!

I like how you did the background paper. My stamp set arrived this week but I have not used it - now I will give it a try.
