I am blogging on the All that Scraps blog today sharing this project. I separated the coffee image from the Latte Monkey using Photoshop.  I’ve used him before, so I really love it when I can get multiple different uses out of a stamp.  I colored each one with some Copics and added a little glitter glue sparkle to the center.
