Hello my sweet and oh so FAB Texture Tuesday friends....
I'm so pumped about this challenge...and I can not wait to see what you all come up with this week! I'm seriously impressed with the ART you all are making!!
So, I have to apologize... I wanted to put together a little recipe for this image... but time is short as I prepare this post.... Please be sure to pop back later today. I will update this entry with the recipe. I promise!
Just a reminder today's link-up must be a coffee or teacup photo... textured with at least one layer of any of my textures. :)

Okie doke.... let's get to it! Shall we?
Please share your 'Cuppa Cuppa Texture Love'!
Update: I'm back with the as promised Image Recipe.
Okay, if you have yet to discover Nelly Nero actions... You are in for a TREAT. Click HERE to check them out. I love the time capsule set.
I used one of her fabulous freebie actions, called shabby suitcase on this image. I then added 2 different textures from The Studio Collection.
Here's how it all went down.
Opened the SOOC image, ran the Nelly Nero action called Shabby Suitcase. Loved the result. Fab Vintage Feel.
Here's the image after I ran the action.
Then I added 2 layers of one of my all time fav textures - Empty Page (from The Studio Collection). One layer at soft light 100% and one layer at multiply 44%.
Here's how it looked after the empty page texture was added.
I was about to call it done... happy with the grungy feel.... but thought wait... what if I added a little more GRIT?
Enter another fav from The Studio Collection - Plaster 2. Because the image colors were soft, I thought i would try the color burn blend mode.... on a heavily pigmented image you can get some funky stuff going on. But with this image it was exactly what I needed. I bumped the opacity down to 83% and removed a little from the cup.
and that my friends... was that.
OH and p.s. - I can't take it... I want to visit every single fabulous cup photo....immediately. 'sigh'... amazing!!! So good!
