Coffee Time


I hope your week is going well, full of creativity.

Here is the 4th and final card to be entered into the Coffee Loving Papercrafter's 2017 Summer Blog Hop. It is a little thrilling to be able to play along with everyone!

I stamped the images onto watercolor paper and used watercolors to paint them. Then they were fussy cut and adhered, some on adhesive foam for a real 3D type of look.

The background was made using a cursive background stamp and silver ink. The bottom is a pearl vellum with a hand punch along the bottom to create a tablecloth. I wish I could remember the name of the branch die cut behind the sentiment (I think it is Memory Box?) but I can't get up right now, sorry. It's sparkly from the glitter on the coffee steam and the pearlized vellum, drops of glossy accents and enamel accents.

Stamp Sets: Both are by Jane's Doodles, "Mom" (the flowers) and "Coffee Time" (the coffee images); MFT Cursive Background
Cardstock: MFT Cement Grey for the background, GKD 120# white for the base, and Grafix 24# Iridescent Pearl Vellum for the tablecloth, strip of Bazzill Black for sentiment
Dies/Punch: Gina Marie "Wonky Rectangles" grey layer; Martha Stewart Eyelet Punch on vellum; and I believe that stem on the top is from Memory Box (could be wrong) and teeny butterfly that I forget from which die (sigh)
Watercolor Paint "Gansai Tambi" (blues, grays, yellows, reds, greens, black) #1 Paint Brush
Watercolor Paper "Strathmore" 140# coldpress
Ranger Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder; VersaMark Ink (sentiment)
Touches of liquid glue, then Prismatic Glitter (on the steam from the coffee cups)
Small drops of Glossy Accents (clear) and Enamel Accents (black) here and there
Inks (a bit of Aegean Blue by Memento on the die cut leaf branch and the shadows of images on the vellum tablecloth); StazOn Black for the images

Mahalo for stopping by!!!
