Happy Retirement!


Hello there, eP fans!  Broni here, and today I wanted to show you a card I made for a dear friend who retired a few days ago (lucky lady!).

I used the cool Daily Grind stamp set from Market Street Stamps because she and I both LOVE our coffee!  And I can just picture her now... every morning sitting there and relaxing with her cuppa, without having to worry about hurrying off to work!

The cup is colored with these Copic markers: BG000, BG01, BG02, BG05.  I also used the BG05 to airbrush the circle before removing it from the die.

And how do you like the background!  I think I'm just totally in love with the Honeycomb background stamp, also from Market Street Stamps.  I stamped it in Versamark, embossed it with clear embossing powder, and then sponged on some Fired Brick, Tumbled Glass, and Shabby Shutters ink using blending tools.  I love the vibrant colors!




Well, that's it for me today!  I hope you like my card!
