Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - December 2014

Welcome to the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  

By now you have to be on your 2nd or 3rd cup of coffee by now! lol I know I am !!  I just love these Coffee Lovers Blog Hops they make me thirsty and super creative.  

Current Favorite Drink: Dark Roast Coffee, with Honey and Coconut Creamer

Leave me a comment telling me what your favorite drink is! I would love to know. 

There is a lot going on with this card and it took me 3 times to get the look I wanted.  I started of with stamping the coffee cup in Hero Arts Mint Unicorn Ink and giving it a coat with clear embossing powder.  Then I went back with a Distress Marker to color in the text on the cup. The coated the entire cup, text, etc.. with versa mark and another coat of embossing powder. That left the entire cup to resist the watercolor background once applied.  I then splattered a little Mr. Hueys on top to look like the foam was everywhere!! 

The sides are some washi tape from my stash.  You probably recognize the coffee sleeve (Starbucks). The patterned paper is from the AC Hot Cocoa Pad. The Twine is Martha Stewart's in pink.
