COFFEE!!!!! Canvas Wall Hanging

OK, so do you ever get so caught up in doing challenges that you forget to just do something for you? For fun? I do. SO! After getting frustrated trying to come up with the PERFECT idea for a Design Team call, I decided to take a break and do something just for me! And viola, here it is. This was so much fun for me. I LOVE coffee...and therefore buy any and every stamp I can find with a coffee theme to it....unfortunatly some of them have been waiting for their turn on the ink pad. SO! I think I used them ALL here!! LOL So fun!
Then AFTER I made it, I thought hey this is kinda funny and will fit into the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge!! LMAO SO!! Entering it I am! I noticed you cant really read the text on here so,the top line of text says: "I Dont have a problem with Caffeine, I have a problem without caffeine." And the bottom one, below the bella says "I dont do morning's untill I've had my coffee."
First I painted the canvas with MM Red Wagon paint and distressed it with some chocolate ink to tone down the red abit. Then for stamps.... I used, Grumpabella, Fluffles, All My Favorite Things, CTMH and my newest favorite coffee stamp set, TPC Studio's CoffeeCafe. I've coloured all th images with Copics and the coffee cups at the top (from TPC set) have "Foam" aka liquid applique and crushed instant coffee. The larger mug at the bottom (from CTMH) has brown embossing for the coffee. Im so happy with this whole thing. I hope you all enjoy it too. THanks for looking.

WOZERS!! That's a great piece lady! WHOA! Your coloring is awesome as usual!! I love how you used so many different stamps into this one. It's just AMAZING! That had to have taken you a few hours. Love the coffee cups at the top too. Great project! Looks so FANTABULOUS!

SO fun, Cheri! I too have an addiction to coffee stamps... mine over-fill a pizza box, and I keep buying more, BUT I don't have ANY of the ones you used here- wow! We'll have to have a coffee night sometime and share all our coffee stamps after loading up on caffeine ;)
