Color My Heart has a most delicious challenge for you this week.
Use TWO shades of brown, and ONE OTHER COLOUR of your choice (plus white if you so desire). The browns are
SADDLE (a nice mocha)
and COCOA (a deep, dark brown).
Fellow DT member Becca made a scrumptious cup-cake, HERE, which led me to thoughts of a nice café latte...
For the feature colour, I used TANGERINE, from the new Dream Pop paper pack, available this month at Close To My Heart. There are six fabulous patterned papers and six gorgeous food-inspired solid colours, with fun glossy embossed patterns.
The coffee stamp set and dies are from The Stamps of Life; see the full set HERE.
I paper-pieced the cup, lid and sleeve. The sleeve, cut from Saddle, was also run through a chevron embossing folder to give the look of corrugated kraft paper. I used Sunset ink, a close match to Tangerine, and some coordinating baker's twine.
This was so much fun to piece together that I made a couple of other examples. My card-making group will be creating their own versions of these, later this week.
Here's a closer look at the MINT:
and STRAWBERRY examples:
So! break out your browns and join in the fun at Color My Heart! You have until midnight next Thursday May 9th to link up your creation. Close to My Heart colors are not necessary--use close colours from your stash. What do these browns make you think of?
Have a great week!
