The Twisted Challenge #2 - Tea/Coffee and Rains!


Hello everyone and welcome to The Twisted Challenge for the month of July! Everyone is posting about rains on every social media platform and  here in my city, we are still waiting for a decent rainfall! So I decided to make some rain to satisfy my soul!

Our Challenge this month is to make a COFFEE/TEA theme card Plus Rain!
I literally took the red mug and ran with it. I loved the contrast of the dark background and the pop of red mug!


I had been wanting to recreate the rain drops and I had seen a couple of videos and this one seemed so easy! So I tried it..

  • The background was made by smooshing Black Soot distress oxide on my craft mat, spraying it with water and then lifting the ink on watercolor paper. 
  • And created raindrops using the tutorial linked above..used my Zig black and white gel pen to get the effect.
  • Once dried, I flicked drops of water and dried in between layers.
  • Stamped the coffee cup from Stampers Anonymous Freshly Brewed stamp set on Neenah Solar White 80# . Colored with copics and fussy cut it. This is my new favorite fussy cutting scissor..
  • The window panel is the MFT cover up Gift Box Die.
  • Stamped my sentiment from Lil Inkers Coffee stamp on a 4.25x6 card base.
  • Stuck my watercolor panel behind the window die cut.
  • Propped the window and coffee mug on foam tape. 
  • Added glossy accents on the rain drops. (In hind sight, I would not have done it. The glossy accents mixed with the zig ink and kind of smudged it.) 
So there you have it, my inspiration for this month's challenge. We would love for you to join in...
We have a prize for our Top Pick this month from THE CRAFT SHOP!
