colourQ challenge #316

OMGosh!! This week's colourQ challenge colors nearly killed me!! I only had the olive ink pad and my attempt to colors acrylic stamps with markers was, like it always is, disastrous. So, Dusty Durango ended up looking more like Pumpkin Pie, and I subbed an old curry colored cardstock from SU! for Hello Honey. But, if you ignore a few color inconsistencies, I think you'll love this card as much as I do!!! I used PTI's new set, Cup of Cheer, because who can resist a cute coffee set with dies for all those adorable cups!! The sentiment is from another coffee stamp set but I have no idea which one or who made it. I hope you had a great day and that you thanks all those special veterans in your life. They are the reason we are the land of the free!

Edited: I replaced the picture of my card after I stamped in Tim Holtz's Wild Honey distress ink a little bit of steam from the sentiment set I used. What a tremendous improvement this little detail adds! And to make sure the steam fit into the space above the cup, I masked the cup with a piece of paper and perfectly placed the steam.
