A Rainbow of Coffee

Hello!  I'm here today with a just for fun card based on a few challenges! :)  If you hadn't seen yet the Summer Coffee Lovers Hop is going on now until June 30th, and I just had to play along...



To create this card I was inspired by the Simply Irresistible Challenge focusing on the Emboss Resist Technique.  I started by stamping and embossing this coffee cup by Mint Owl Studio in a Sparkly White Embossing Powder.  At first I had thought about watercoloring over the image, but then when I opened up one of my drawers I came across one of my chalk circular ink pads and decided to simply turn it over and press the ink down onto the image as it was.  I then went back in with a sponge and added more color where it was needed.  Once it dried I diecut the heart around the cup and hoped it up with foam adhesive.  I stamped the heart and sentiment with a kraft ink onto the Kraft cardbase.


Oh, and I almost forgot I added a spritz of shimmer, simply because I like it! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Happy Crafting!

What a sweet idea to have a heart shaped colour wheel. It is such a pretty effect with white embossing.
