Beate's Sketch #52

This is the card I made for Beate's WSC #52. Admittedly it doesn't look a great deal like the sketch, but the sketch was the inspiration! All this nice rainy cold weather (nice because it reminds me of winters in Victoria) has had me thinking about nice warm drinks, so I pulled out another old favourite set to play with, Like It A Latte. Because of the packaging of the Jarrah Chocolate Chai Latte drink mix (can be seen in the middle, right down the bottom. Sorry, that really is the best image I have been able to find online!), I decided to go with the Berry Bliss paper and colours. For the main image I stamped the cup on Whisper White cardstock in Purely Pomegranate ink, stamped the froth in Close to Cocoa, masked the froth and stamped the steam in Pretty in Pink ink. I then masked the steam and sponged a little Close to Cocoa on the top of the froth, then masked the cup and sponged Close to Cocoa around it's base. The sentiment was stamped on the paper using Chocolate Chip ink AFTER I had stuck it on the chipboard. I debated whether to do it before hand, but thought I'd probably get the paper crooked and have to start all over again. I felt it needed something underneath the main image, so I attached some Pretty in Pink brads. I don't think the balance of this card is perfect, but I am quite pleased with the masked sponging, I really should do it more often.

Mmm, now I feel like a Choc Chai Latte!
