He ain't heavy...

Hello all... it's the "Coffee Guys" today - the two dashing chaps from the Generation Redux stamp plate who, for me, are definitely brothers.
I created the background for this tag using Pan Pastels, blending pale blues onto the background, and then stamping the brilliant letter block from the Secretary Pool plate in Versamark ink.  Then you sweep more Pan Pastels over the top and you get a fabulously sharp impression of the stamp, but in a subtle shaded colour gradation.
The chaps are stamped over the top in Potting Soil Archival, and I used my very small collection of Copic Markers to add some colour to the pair of them.
Around the edges I used the bubble wrap stamp also from the Generation Redux set.  It echoes the bubble wrap already within the image of the brothers.
And then I echoed that with some wooden circle confetti from the UmWow Studios.  Lots of echoes!
On some of them I added the bubble wrap again, stamped in Versamark and embossed in Vanilla White.
It's all mounted onto corrugated cardboard, inked up with Gathered Twigs and Walnut Stain.

There are just a couple of days left to enter your Artistic Outpost projects in the Februrary Referral Program - hope to see you there.  Thanks so much for stopping by, and I'll see you again soon.
