Very Merry Cup of Cheer

Today's challenge at Create with Connie and Mary is a sketch challenge. It's a little conventional, and a little bit out of the box - something for everyone!

Sometimes I get something in my head and can't go in a different direction no matter how hard I try. This was one of those occasions. All I could think of was a cup of coffee when I saw the sketch!
True, the cups are smaller than the sketch but you get the idea. I stamped the background with Whisper white ink and heat dried it. The coffee cups are card stock and designer paper. If you look closely you can see where I used Blendabilities to add some shading and shadow. One of many uses for these fabulous markers.

Stamps: Chevron Background, Perfect Blend, And Many More
Paper: Real Red designer paper
Card Stock: Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Real Red
Ink: Whisper White craft, Black Memento, Cherry Cobbler and Smoky Slate Blendabilities
Other: Antique Brad, Big Shot, Word Bubles frame lit, Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine, dimensionals

Are looking for some stamping inspiration? Do you love a challenge? Then why not head over to Create with Connie and Mary challenge blog? Hope you can play along! 

Thanks for stopping by.
