In the Pink

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
Challenges entered:
The Card Concept #51 – this could fall into the classy & elegant category or the mixed media category
Back soon with more my sweet friends…

  1. LOVE this design and the techniques you've used. The vellum banner is perfect to let the beautiful background show through. Have to look into those mica flakes … awesome. xx

  2. Am loving the “beverage series”! But particularly like the sentiment on this card and all the lovely textures. Especially appropriate today as I look out at the new foot of snow in the backyard. Tee Hee.
