I just love this big coffee cup stamp, so stamped it in Chocolate Fresh Ink, then used a watercolor brush and water to color using the chocolate and cocoa colors. I finished off with some white pencil and a bit of grey shadowing around the cup.
I had a leftover piece of water colored paper that I thought was perfect for spring, so I cut it down and embossed the sentiment from New Beginnings in white. I then stamped two of the flowers from New Beginnings on crumb cake, embossed in white and cut with the coordinating Springtime Stitches Die Set. I tucked in a couple leaves cut with the same set and accented with a pearl. My white panel is embossed with a stitched clouds embossing folder and then I tied some baker's twine around the panels and accented with one of the fun little coffee brads I received. Aren't they so cute?
Well, it sounds like my boys are about 15 seconds from civil war, so I'm calling it a post. :) Happy hopping!
