Playing around with my stamps

Do you find that you collect stamps and then never use them?  Well I do... so I dug through my stamps and came across this one from Rubbernecker.  I hadn't used her because I was looking for just the right saying.  I found a saying at an expo 2 months ago so I have no excuse!  This is Edna, one of the Rubbernecker "Old People" stamps.  They are so cute I wish I had them all.


I used Stampin Up cardstock in black, Night of Navy, and Sage Shadow.  Using Versamark Ink I stamped a coffee cup over and over to create a background pattern.  The black decoration is a left-over frame that I had cut from my cricut for another project.  I think it was from the Storybook cartridge.  I took a background stamp that is coffee beans and stamped with versamark over the frame then heat set clear embossing powder.

Edna was colored with Prismacolor pencils.  I added glossy accents to the lens' of her glasses and stickles on her slippers and necklace.

The inside saying says...  Behind every successful women is a substantial amount of coffee.
