Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop


I had so much fun participating in the Holiday Coffee Lovers blog hop that I just had to play along with the Spring re-incarnation!! You can find all of the details HERE at the main blog, but basically if you hop along to all of the participants in the Linky you have a chance to win some serious prizes! 

The theme this time around is SPRING, so I went with some light, happy colours that help chase those winter blues away.. I know I'm ready for some nicer weather!! 

Here's my card... A little watercolouring, a little velum, I love it!!


I stamped all of the coffee cups in Versamark and then embossed them white embossing powder on watercolor paper and got colouring. I used Angora watercolours and a waterbrush to do all of the colouring. It's very relaxing to watercolour - there's no way to really mess it up so I just play! 



I love using vellum when I want to add a sentiment on top but don't want to completely cover up the goodness underneath! You can still see the cups shining through, and that makes me happy! 



Thanks for stopping by! 
Good luck and have fun!!
