Shimmering Coffee

Hello, me again... I am here to give you a bit of inspiration for our STAMPlorations Theme and Photo Prompt
You can follow the theme or the photo prompt, and of course both, but your make must have some stamping!

Today's card is using the Thank You Coffee set, and both the focal image and the sentiment have been  stamped with white pigment ink. 

I then used and coloured with metallic pencils (Derwent) for the cup and flower. 

I have found it very difficult to show you a true to life photo of that card as the natural light is less than ideal at this time of the year. The colours are truer in this one taken in the shade (left) 
And in the sun all you can see is shimmer and the colours are completely obliterated:

Pop by the STAMPlorations blog to admire what my teamies did for this month's challenge and get some inspiration to create your own make for a chance to win.
