Coffee Lovers Hop Spring/Summer 2020- Graciellie Design

Coffee Lovers Blog Hop May 22

Hi crafties!

Welcome to the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! I am so happy you’ve stopped by!

Today I am so excited to be joining as a participant of Graciellie Design DT and showcasing her new beautiful coffee themed release Coffee Queen Mini digital stamp bundle, especially created for this event! The team has prepared absolutely amazing creations so there will be lots of inspiration and a prize! You can check out DT amazing creations HERE.

Graciellie Design is one of the sponsors of the hop and will be giving a prize • $25 Gift Card from GD digital shop. 

I have created a card for this special even using one of the beautiful coffee themed illustrations from Coffee Queen set.

I started by sizing the image on Word document and adding the sentiment (both from the set). Next I printed the image on watercolor paper and let ink dry overnight. 

I am not sure if that step was necessary, however I didn’t want any smearing on my image.

I colored the image with watercolor brush pens adding additional layer of color around the edges where the shadows would be. I created the wood table top for the mug to sit on, by just coloring the bottom with brown.

I masked the image then lightly inked the background using brick stencil and Antique linen distress ink.

Once dry I added some blue splatter around the image.

As a final touch I added pink Nuvo drops to pull the pink from the flower and my card was finished!

    Beautiful card. I love the colors. I am loving seeing this coffee cup used on so many blogs and the awesome colors that can be done.. Pink is a favorite along with the teal and I love your card.
