JUGs 15 Technique....Add Stitching!

I thought this card was just perfect for the add stitching challenge that the JUGs crew has offered up this week. Sometimes we purchase things and rarely use them but I must say that since I bought my Janome, Sew Mini, I have used it constantly without having troubles. Very easy to operate!

My card base is Pure Luxury Chocolate Kiss from Gina K. Designs. The dp is from my scrap bin and I am unsure of maker. The stamp set I used was designed by Rupa Shevde for GKD and is quite fun to create with. I stamped my images in Memento, Rich Cocoa and then colored them with Copic markers. The colors used were 0, C1, B21, B23, E35, E57. There are highlights on the steam, cup and carafe that were done with my Stardust pen. I added brown Dewdrops down one side because they sort of reminded me of coffee beans.

Hope you're little corner of the world is warming up! Be back soon.
