Latte Art

Latte Art

This "Coffee Art" card is a unique card and I'm not so sure this technique has a name.  When you feel the card or see it in person, you find yourself saying, "How was this made?"  I love how each card turns out unique.  See both examples in the coloring below.

It isn't a solid die cut piece, and it isn't inlaid.  It isn't embossed.  It's a die cut that has been cut onto a mask sheet, and the layers peeled up only as colored... so the results are a multi-layered coloring design that adds texture!  Love this!

The challenge I was running into was that I wanted control of colors beyond just the die cut piece, and simply creating a stencil out of it didn't work for what I wanted to achieve. So it's kind of a stencil hybrid.  I can't wait to share this with you on a video.  There is probably a really easy way of creating this - I just don't know of it and I had a lot of fun peeling up the layers, revealing patterns as I went. So... while there may be easier ways, I don't think there is any more fun to be had than how I created this!

I made it for the Coffee Lover's challenge and also the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.  For this to fit in both challenges, it needed to have a summer coffee theme for the Coffee Lovers, and using a stencil from Simon Says Stamp.  This accomplished both with the flower latte art using the (hybrid) stencil!

Colors used were antique linen, ground espresso, and vintage photo.  Worn lipstick for the lipstick stain, of course!
