Using my MISTI, I centered then stamped the coffee cup in front. I then created a 2-piece mask with Mask It. I probably could have made a single mask, but I was considering a pattern on the mugs. An idea I later scrapped. I masked over the full cup first, then stamped the cups on either side, moved the mask over to the second position and stamped the right outside cup, then moved the mask to the second position on the left, and stamped the last cup on the left. Easy peasy! Once that was done I began my Copic coloring. I first colored with 3 color family markers for the shading for each of the five cups. After I colored the lids, I felt the shading was a bit understated. So I added C3 and C5 to the cup's shaded areas (depending on the cup color). I added a little white colored pencil details to the lids as well. I then stamped and masked the coffee bean rings onto the cups with some MFTs Hybrid ink in Hot Fudge, then stamped the main sentiment in MFTs Hybrid ink in Steel Grey. I then die cut a banner from MFTs Blueprint Sketch and white heat-embossed the smaller sentiment on some shimmery, Black Pearl cardstock by Crafter's Companion. I then trimmed my card panel to 4.25" x 5.0"and mounted my card panel to the same Black Pearl cardstock for my card base.
I hope you enjoyed my card, poking a little fun at one our crafter's neuroses! Stay safe and healthy. Stay indoors and craft more during this difficult time.
