SHOPPING OUR STASH #432 - Hot Beverages for Cold Nights


Hello crafty peeps and welcome!

It's time for another challenge at 


This fortnight, as the title suggests, we are looking for projects 

that feature a hot beverage.

Here's what I came up with:

These coffee mugs were fun, and very therapeutic to color. No

shading, just coloring to color. (My inner child had fun!)

I used a stencil to emboss the aqua panel. I think that's the first time

I tried that out, and I like it. I'll be using that technique more. 

We hope that you'll play along in our Hot Beverages challenge

at Shopping Our Stash. For more inspiration, do yourself a favor

and check out what my teammies created. So much crafty goodness!

Thanks for visiting. Have a great day!
