Hello and Happy Valentine's Day! Hope you have a chance to spend time with someone you love today! I'm working today and so is my hubby so I'll try to at least have a little time with him tonight when we get home! Well of course since it is Tuesday, it's time for another Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! This week is all about color and this is a beautiful color combination!
I made a decision as soon as I saw the new Unity Stamp Co. Kit of the Month to use these adorable coffee cups and sentiment from the Kit. I absolutely LOVE coffee and all things related to it!
I went back and forth on whether to emboss in black or white but I do love them embossed in white with the watercolor resist. I used Bristol Smooth Cardstock for the emboss resist layer. I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Peacock Feathers for the watercolor resist. I also used some Tim Holtz Markers to make some splatters in those colors as well as Black Soot. I used my heat tool to make sure that everything was completely dry. The sentiment was stamped in My Favorite Things Black Hybrid Ink. I used my Misti so I could stamp several times to be sure that I got a nice dark impression and then cut it down to 5" x 3 3/4". I added a 5 1/8" x 3 7/8" layer of Basic Black. I added 3 loops of black twine and tied it in a bow in the front and mounted it on a shimmery blue A2 card base that I believe came in a MFT Card Kit. It was a super simple yet fun card to make and turned out super cute. I'm beginning to really like a messy watercolor kind of look lately!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Blessings, Tina
