SIP Challenge #117 Watercolor with Lawn Fawn Pumpkin Spice!

Hello my friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend and survived Monday!  I had a busy Monday but still made time to head out for lunch for my favorite drink.... coffee!  And what kind of coffee says it's fall... Pumpkin Spice Latte of course!  This week's challenge over at Stamp, Ink, Paper is a Watercolor Challenge and I made it all about Pumpkin Spice Latte!  lol

The background in this week's challenge banner inspired me to do some distress ink smooshing onto watercolor for my background!  

I started with a 5 1/2" x 3" panel of watercolor paper that was sprayed with water.  I smooshed some Tim Holtz Mustard Seed Distress Ink onto a piece of acetate and sprayed it with water and then pushed it around onto the watercolor paper.  I followed the same technique but with Spiced Marmelade and Rusty Hinge Distress Ink, drying between each layer.  A Distress Splatter Brush and some more of the Rusty Hinge Distress Ink thinned out with water added some dark splatters.  Next I stamped my Lawn Fawn Cup and shaker onto Bristol Smooth Cardstock with Versafine Black Onyx Ink and then dried it with my heat cool.  Distress Inks in Rusty Hinge, Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain were used to color in the coffee and the cup.  A small amount of Scattered Straw Distress Ink  was used to highlight the edges of the whipped cream.  I used a stiff brush to brush on a little bit of the Rusty Hinge and Walnut Stain Distress Ink onto the whipped cream and inside the shaker for the Pumpkin Spice.  A Zig Marker in Medium Gray and a wet small brush  highlighted the metal ring of the shaker.  I attached the cup and shaker to the watercolor panel with foam squares.  I used a little more of the Walnut Stain Distress Ink with a wet brush under the cup to ground it.  Clear Wink of Stella was brushed onto the Whipped Cream.  Some FSJ Journey Glaze was brushed all over the cup and the shaker.  (I LOVE the Journey Glaze.. it's the one thing I never want to run out of!)  I used my Misti to stamp the sentiment onto the bottom of the watercolor panel with more of the Versafine Black Onyx Ink and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I used some scraps of Woodgrain DSP onto the top and bottom of the panel and then attached it all to a piece of Patterned Paper from my stash that I felt matched the colors well.  I added a few Pretty Pink Posh 4mm sequins to finish it off and then attached it to a card base of 110# Neenah Classic Solar White Cardstock.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you'll stop by and pick up a Pumpkin Spice Latte today!  I know I will! 

Blessings, Tina
