Cuppa Joe

Is there anything better than a cuppa joe?  It is the liquid morning to get you going!  Well, my cuppa joe inspired me to work with distressed inks and sprays today.

Using lots of supplies, the background was created with distressed ink.  Then stencils filled in the background.  There were some   stamps that added a little grunge, and acrylic paint to add some interest.  Some distress spray splatters added a perfect touch. The card was finished by adding three gems and layered on the base.
