Having a play day today! Wanted something bright and cheery as we are about to get upwards of 5 cm. of snow. Mother Nature's way of reminding us that while the calendar says spring...it's just not quite here yet :)
Another card for the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, as well as a couple of other challenges...
My background was made by adding Versamark through my stencil and then heat embossing in white. Then I added three colors of Distress Ink to my craft mat, spritzed them with water and dragged my watercolor paper through it. Once it was dry, I added some gold mica paste through a different stencil.
More heat embossing for the sweet little coffee cup and sentiment...this time in gold. Yes, I know, I'm still on that gold kick! A bit of gold cording and a smattering of sequins and done!
Here's what I used:
Paper: watercolor, vellum and Neenah Solar White
Ink: Distress and Versamark
Stamps: Verve Coffee Helps
All the other stuff: Verve Cup for All Seasons die set, TCW stencils, white embossing powder, gold embossing powder, gold cording, gold mica paste, sequins, adhesives
The Card Concept #51 - this could fall into the classy & elegant category or the mixed media category
Back soon with more my sweet friends...
