Coffee/Tea +Rains at The Twisted Challenges

Hi Everyone

Am sure by now all of us are experiencing the Rains in India and Mumbai rains are super famous for all the trouble they create. But Mumbai rains are also a lot fun. People step out with family and friends on flooded streets to get muddy and play football....I have seen this happening only and only in Amchi Mumbai!!!

                                      Well this months challenge is Coffee/Tea +Rains.

Apt for the month isnt it? Rains and Tea with pakodas .....yummmmmm....but am a coffee addict (Cut me anywhere and I shall bleed coffee...hahhaha) so my theme is Coffee +Rains.

Since the topic is so close to my heart I made it around personality and what I love making the most Bookmarks !!

Lets look at them individually:

Bookmark 1:

This one is just 'ME' ....Coffee, Books and Rains is just the perfect combination for me to be in bliss and heaven. All images are stamped and coloured. The poor girl has been cut in two brutal pieces to give the effect of she sitting in a coffee mug reading a book. This was a standing image of a girl  reading a book. I have extending her legs to form the 'bent knee' illusion with my Mitsubishi Uni Pin fineline pen. The Rain drops is a stamp from Altenew Dancing in the Rain.The sentiment is also from Altenew Dancing in the Rain. The cup image is from Jane's Doodle and the girl is from Penny Black-a day in Paris.

Bookmark 2:

This design is an extension of my dream/wish/fantasy to swim in a coffee pool. All images are stamped and coloured and again the poor girl has been disrupted from a serene pool bench and brutally cut in two halves. Since she already had her knees bent I didnt have to do the extra bit here. The sentiment is from Altenew Dancing in the Rain. The cup image is from Jane's Doodle and the girl is from Penny Black-a day in Paris.

Bookmark 3:

This design is again an extension of 'ME'. I love coffee and people who know me will vouch for this. There was a time I was seen in any and every cafe in the town ....just sitting and sipping a hot cup of coffee reading a book or script (when I was working in media) or just ideating with designs to craft or holding my meetings (again when I was working in media). Since last year I have reduced my coffee intake to a great deal and my visit to cafes to almost NIL. I started on my healthy living trip with Yoga but the temptation hardly dies...right? So I love this image of yogic frog from Stampendous slyly eyeing the tempting coffee mug on a beautiful rainy day. The sentiment is super true in my case with regards to my love for Coffee and it belongs to Stamping Bella Tiny Townie Rachel Loves The Rain collection. The coffee mug is from Penny Black-Mocha Moments. The window with rains and city backdrop is from Altenew Dancing in the Rain collection.

I enhanced the rain drops with a silver Uniball pen and a little bluish ting with the help of my Zigs and kept the skies and city purely dull to emphasize the sentiment and highlight the yogic frog and coffee mug.

Bookmark 4:

Rains and Romance go hand in me chessy or filmy I believe in that. So I have highlighted that element through the coffee mugs and heart image. The sentiment is from Altenew Dancing in the Rain. The coffee mugs are from Lawn Fawn and the heart is a punch cut out with some glossy accents to highlight it.

I gave a colour wash to the city backdrop with pastel colours and the rain drops have been done as mentioned above

Hope you like the inspirations and play along with us this month with the theme at The Twisted Challenges
