Passion for promarkers #87–DT project

Happy Tuesday dear friends.  I hope you all had a lovely Valentine’s card and were spoilt by your other halves!!  I’m here today to share with you my DT project for this week’s passion for promarkers challenge.  This week Nic has set the theme and she has chosen the brilliant colour theme of “coffee and cream”.  Don’t forget you must use your promarkers or aqua markers to be included in our prize draw.  I decided for a change not to make a card and altered a cappuccino tin that I had in my cupboard.  Here is the before picture:

and here is the tin after I’ve altered it:

I used a gorgeous image by Whiff of Joy called ‘Willow with coffee to go’ and I found this fun coffee bean paper in my stash, which of course I had to use.  I embossed the kraft card and used my MS cherish punch for the border.  I am planning on filling the tin with coffee pods for my MIL’s coffee machine as it’s her birthday this week.

Our sponsor this week is DigiStamp Boutique and the lucky winner will receive 6 digi images of their choice.  As Sally-Ann has so many super cute images you will be spoilt for choice.
