Make a 'Thanks a Latte' Hand Painted Card

Create a beautiful shimmering coffee colored background for cards using a few essential inks from the Imagine and Tsukineko stable. Work on a piece of recycled cardstock and create a fun checkered effect.

Skill: Beginner
Time: 30 minutes


Step 1

Use a medium-sized paintbrush and paint a criss-cross pattern onto a piece of cardstock using Truffle All-Purpose Ink. Leave the painted background to dry naturally.

Step 2

Once the All-Purpose Ink is dry, use a larger paint brush and paint a layer of Creative Medium in Shimmer over the background. Leave to dry to reveal a gorgeous shimmer effect.

Step 3

Stamp your “Thanks a Latte” sentiment and coffee cup onto smooth white cardstock using Memento Rich Cocoa ink. Trim into tag sized strips.

Step 4

Attach the stamped sentiment onto the background card using a heart-themed brad. Finish off the look by adding another smaller brad and small diamanté.
