I decided to create a little coffee loving locket for myself this time for the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog hop. It was quite fun sitting down to get inky while having the yummy aroma of freshly ground coffee lingering around (and on me). I thought I'd take some photos of the process from beginning to end so that I could share it with you.
The next step was to brush off the coffee grounds. I used my Journey Bloom Tool because the bristles were firm, yet gentle enough to brush the beans away without leaving dents or brown swipe marks.Media Pattern stamp set to add a few "splats" of Beach Breeze ink.
Hazelnut Blend ink to the "blob" pattern and stamped it to the outer edge of the circle.
Natural Journey Thread around the stamped circle then realized I wanted some silk splatter on it too...SOOO...out came my Dark Roast Silk and some splattering commenced. :)
Bezel Block set because it's just the right size for my locket!
I ended up adding quite a bit more stamping as I discovered that the coffee grounds and charms covered up the stamping when they were inside the locket. I also added a bit of handwritten "coffee" words too.Coffee Cup Charms and the Red I Heart Hearts bauble finished up the locket. I tied a little bit of jute (then rubbed it up a bit so it would unravel).
Hope you enjoy this little locket. It's a perfect accompanying gift with my card! :)
