Hello Everyone. Hope you are all well. It is that time of year again where I will be sharing coffee themed cards. I hope to get several done this week for one of the best blog hops around. It is the Coffee Loving Card Markers Hop. Be sure to check it out there are so many great sponsors who have generously donated prizes that you have an opportunity to win. Even if you don’t have time to enter there so many fantastic cards to view in the gallery. I just love seeing them all.
Here is my first one I am sharing and will be linking it to the challenge below.
On with the design and ingredients.
Paper: Neenah 110# white for the base and 80# white for the cup.
Ink/coloring medium: Versafine Onyx black ink, Arteza watercolor pencils, Distress oxide ink in ripe persimmons and faded jeans. Hero Arts Unicorn.
Stamps: Unity Stamp Co. – Stay Strong, Simon Says Stamp Coffee and Tea, Stampabilities dot background stamp and Stampendous – posted script background stamp.
Embellishments: Strips of blue striped washi tape, Wink of Stella pen, Nuvo Crystal glaze and Studio Katia crystal rainbow confetti in orange.
This is a one layer card.I started with the front white panel and stamped a messy dot background. Once dry stamped over it with the Stampendous posted script background stamp just in the center by masking the ends. They were too harsh looking so I masked the center panel and distressed the ends and it was still not right so I went over the ends with the HA unicorn ink to soften it. Then added the strips of washi tape. After coloring the coffee cup with the watercolor pencils and an aqua brush I added wink of Stella to the topping and Crystal glaze to the straw. The cup is popped up on foam tape.
