Hi friends! I'm back with another card for the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. I'm having a lot of fun using the limited time free Three Cheers digi and decided to go mixed media for this one.
I wanted a watery background look, so started by covering a piece of white cardstock with gesso. Next I scraped on some lime green, aqua and white paints with a credit card. I scribbled a bit with a teal distress crayon, then watered it up with a waterbrush and let it drip around until I was happy with the background. I then splattered a bit of watered down heavy body white paint with a fan brush for that splashy waves kind of look.
The sentiment from Three Cheers is printed on white paper and cut with a stitched circle die, then I colored the cup with Copic markers, hand cut and dolled up with a bit of frosted lace stickles and some glossy glaze and glitter on the star. I finished with distressed edges and a bit of bakers twine.
So much fun to get my fingers paint stained again! Hope it inspires! Thanks so much for stopping by!
