STOP and smell the coffee....well actually Latte

I have been wanting this set for a long time and finally broke down and bought it. It reminds me of waking up in the morning and smelling freshly brewed coffee or walking into a coffee shop. The smell of Lattes and coffee fill the air.
This set is called "Smell the Coffee" and I used two images from that set. I used Dick markers to color them with and for the foam in the cups I used White Tulip Puffy Dimensional Paint and before it dried I sprinkle a tiny amount of brown embossing powder to make it look like sprinkles of cinnamon.
After laying, I used the technique called "Faux Stitching" and if you knew me...you would say it looked like my real stitching which I cannot get straight if my life depended on it! lol But I like the way it came out.
The bigger cup was stamped, colored, cut out and then layered with liquid glass. After it dried, I popped it up with Sticky Doos to give it more dimension.
I stamped the words in brown which made it too hard to read...if I get daring someday...I will restamp over it with black.............if I get daring!
