Blended Blotches Java

I needed to make a card representing the letter J -- and all I could think about was Java. It was actually the only word that I could think of using the letter J! While I was making it, I was thinking of Hetty Sanders the whole time -- she loves her coffee (we are kindred souls in that regard). So this morning, while sipping my own coffee, I thought I would share this card.

The background uses the Blended Blotches Technique from the April 2011 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter. I layered that over a piece of Torn Paper Frames (December 2008 TJNL). That piece is layered on a piece of walnut colored paper that I LOVE. I made a wonderful discovery when I made this -- I used Paper Temptress Vintage Silver Lustre Paper and rubbed Distress Ink over it -- I have to tell you, this paper is exceptionally beautiful in real life. I will be coloring all my Lustre paper like that from now on!

Stamps: Club Scrap; Cardstock: Paper Temptress.

Beautiful work, Pat. You can't even see the lines because you blended so well. Lots of work went into this card.
