Are any of you big coffee drinkers? I will say that I’m not a big lover of the caffeinated beverage, but I do indulge in some coffee every once in a while – as long as it has a lot of cream and sugar in it! Even though I’m not an every day coffee drinker, I love the illustrated/line drawing quality of this stamp set, so I made sure to order it a few weeks ago!
And for this small set of 4.25″x4.25″ cards, I did what I generally like to do – stamp a few images and add a watercolor wash. I find it’s a good way for me to “break in” a new stamp set lately. So, I cut my watercolor panels (I like Canson watercolor paper) and stamped a few different images and sentiments on each panel from the Coffee Love stamp set. I used Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink for this, because it’s waterproof.
I used my Gansai Tambi Watercolor set and various cool and warm brown tones to create different colored washes on each panel. Once they were all dry, I used a stitched square die to cut each panel a bit smaller, and then mounted each onto a card base cut from Neenah Desert Storm card stock.
I added some clear sequins to each panel to finish everything off!
Make it a great week! :)
