Thanks a Latte’ ! * TTC23

Ready for a new challenge?

The ShinHan ARTisans have a great new challenge this week:  Use a food theme & add some shadowing!    TTC23

Well, believe it or not, my personal stash of “food” related stamps is a lot more limited than I realized.   Apparently ‘food’ is something I think of when I am ‘not’ stamping, rather than the other way around.   ;)   So, my project fits into more of an ‘accessory’ theme in a cookbook … … Beverages!

Once upon a time, I really did enjoy coffee … especially a couple of cups in the morning, like a large part of the working population.   These days, coffee and I are only ‘occasional’ friends.  We’re no longer the ‘besties’ we were some time ago.  The only time that’s really a bit of a pain is when I have to present myself as fully useful & 100% on-the-ball early in the morning.    However …. I adore a latte’ every now & then!   No issues there, except the sweet guilt.   If you don’t have experience with the sweet guilt, consider yourself to be lucky!  ;)     A latte’ can be decadent, as is the one above.  It’s a mocha caramel latte’ … no low-fat nonsense here. Mmmmmmm!

So there we have it …  a beverage-foody creation!  Here’s a color map to show you the colors that helped me create the calorie-free paper & ink version.   Just click on the image for a larger peek.

    LOL — I understand… I have been accused of buying stamps to keep my stamps company — like chocolate sayings for the chocolate pictures for the cookie pictures :)
