Art Nudge #21

Happy Tuesday!

Here’s the new Art Nudge (#21!). Join the Facebook group for a new prompt every week! You can find the group HERE.


Here’s my take on the Nudge. The coffee cup was created with circle dies (and a rectangle with a bit of a curve cut with scissors). I used ink pads (the corner of a ink spot or the edge) to do all of the coloring on the coffee part and plate. I watercolored the flowers in the corner and put down a bit of white acrylic paint to put the Coffee Helps sentiment on.

Products used:

Here is another fun image from Tiddly Inks for challenge (TTC19 Getting Hairy) over on the Touch Twin & More Challenges. Today’s card uses pink so it also qualifies for the Tiddly Inks challenge (#89 Pretty in Pink).

I’m not participating directly in the Operation Write Home Hop but my card is participating as part of the Sizzix Design Team. It was a fun card to make but not a quick and easy one so I thought I’d show how I put it together.
