Anything Goes: Thing 2 as Promised

 Hello Crafters!

I'm not saying I'm out of the slump but I'm cautiously optimistic. 

The other day I created two things. Here is thing two courtesy of Paper Smooches: Anything Goes. Sometimes making it up as you go is a good thing. I had recently bought Hot Concoctions from Paper Smooches because it's adorable, I love coffee, and I know that infectiously upbeat Amy Tsuruta is going to have another Coffee Lover's blog hop someday and frankly I'm running out of sets to use. 

When I got the set I saw a rainbow of different mugs and I really wanted to try to recreate it. So I did. 

I stamped the mugs in various distress ink and watercolored with the same. After it was dry I added details with a white gel pen. Fairly simple. the sentiment is from the same set I just masked it a little to make it a horizontal sentiment instead of a stacked one. Of course I added some Wink of Stella. That stuff is the crack of crafting. We'll be trading Wink of Stella's on dark street corners and behind dive bars. Seriously , they'll be an afternoon special on it soon. 

Thanks for dropping by!
