A Cup of Coffee & A Good Book - Color Dare Challenge #468

Here is my DT card for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #468 "Inspiration Photo" using a coffee theme for "Caffeine Fueled Paper Play" at  Coffee Lover's Cardmaking. 

I primarily focused myself on the apron and hat in the Inspiration Photo and thought a quilted background in those colors would make a pretty background for my card.  And what better then to wrap yourself around this quilt with a cup of coffee and a good book in hand.  

I started off with a Darice Embossing Folder and then started coloring the stitches with Copic alcohol-based brush pen B99 closest to CTMH Sapphire ink.  The other colors were a combination of the different shades in orange, yellow, red and blue from apron.   

In my stash there were dies for a stack of books and a coffee go-cup which I  colored using the same Copic colors in the background.  Using Sapphire Ink a sentiment was added, sponged edges and layered with cardstock.  

Color Dare challenges are carried forward for two weeks so if you didn't share a project for this Inspiration Photo challenge you still have another week to enter.  

Both challenges are on the side bar of the Color My Heart Color Dare challenge blog. Please check out Design Team Cards and other entrants to give you inspiration and join us for future fun color challenges.  

And don't forget to go to Caffeine Fueled Paper Play for coffee inspiration, a fun monthly challenge... lot's of inspiration there too.
