Did you know how many uses a coffee filter can have apart from the obvious one? It is amazing! You will find a fantastic showcase of coffee filter art at the Gingersnap Creations Blog, the new Spicy Supply challenge is: Coffee Filters. My contribution is a little book made of coffee filters.
I used unbleached coffee filters which I dyed and stained them with tea and coffee. The results were a bit disappointing at first. The filters didn't take the dye very well and remained quite pale. I repeated the process several times and distressed the edges of all pages with Tea Dye Ranger distress ink.
The background is stamped with Elzybells stamps and Brilliance ink. The images are from the Graphics Fairy, Magic Moonlight Free Images and Flickr, coffee recipes from the Caffe Society. The cup is a free stamp from the Craft Stamper magazine.
This is definitely my dream: coffee and cakes (lol). Stamps are Hero Arts, Elzybells and Rogue Redhead Designs with a lot of paper piecing using Crate Paper.
Coffee and cake is even better when having friends around. Image from Night Owl Vintage, stamps: Woodware and Studio g. Cups and pots are cut with a Sizzix Die and Laura Ashley paper.
Enjoy your coffee and cake and the incredible coffee filter art at Gingersnap Creations! Petra.
