Coffee Girl (Gerda Steiner image)

Hi, everybody! Before I share my card, I would like to extend a warm welcome to my newest follower - Neli Mandel - so happy to have you here! 

Today's card was made with a sweet image from Gerda Steiner called Coffee Girl. I coloured her with Prismacolor pencils, fussy-cut, and popped up with foam tape. This is a progressive challenge, so since I made a card last month using the March digi, I received this April digi for free! You can join at any time; see details here.


I created the background by spongeing Rusty Hinge Distress Ink onto Simon Says Stamp's Repeated Hearts stencil.  I inked just the area behind the image, not the entire card front. I stamped a sentiment from Clearly Besotted's A Little Sentimental clear stamps and added three sequins.  I mounted the stenciled panel onto a top-folded card, popped up with fun foam.  The right edge of the card was covered in sparkly washi tape.

I would also like to support these fun challenges:  Clique Kits April AG 1/3; Craftin Desert Diva's AG UE; Crafting from the Heart AG 1/3; Creative Fingers AG 2/3; Creative Inspirations A Trio of (Sequins) UE; Creative Ladybirds AG 1/3; DL.ART April Linky AG UE 1/day; DL.ART Thankful Thursday Let's See Orange 1/3; Fresh Brewed Blog Coffee or Tea 1/5; Inspiration Destination AG UE; Ladybug Crafts AG 2/3; Loves Rubberstamps AG UE; My Craft Creations April AG UE; Not Just Cards AG UE; Papertake Weekly AG 3/5; Party Time Tuesdays April AG 1/3; Penny's Paper-Crafty AG 2/3; {PIN}spirational Inspirational Photo (inspired by long-haired girls) 1/5; Scrappy Moms Stamps In the Kitchen UE; Sister Act (Cards Only) AG UE; Tuesday Throwdown Friendship 1/3; Word Art Wednesday AG w Uplifting Sentiment 2/5; Your Next Stamp Colour Challenge 2/3; Your Scrapbook Place AG 2/3
