World's Best Coffee & Challenge FTHS 157

For today's stamp I used a digi from From The Heart Stamps called "World's Best Coffee".  
I was just in Puerto Rico visiting my family
and my dad asked me to send him a card that was "him".  
He is an avid coffee drinker and the world's best DAD! 
So this image was perfect for him!
You see...the label on the cup has a banner with he words "World's BEST" written on them!! ;)

I used Copic Markers to color this beauty!

To cut it I used my Scan n Cut 2 machine...love it!
The circle loop die is from Stephanie Barnard's the Stamps of Life set "Friendly Phrases"

This card will be entered in the weekly Challenge for From the heart stamps #157

I like this little coffee cup, I have been wanting a coffee image for a while. 
I was very happy with the results!

I have been traveling for a few weeks and haven't colored in a while.

I will be going back to Kit and Clowder and review some coloring techniques!

In the meantime...have fun with your hobby!

Rose Wonder & watercoloring with die inks

I have been busy learning how to watercolor. 
For today's card I wanted to show you a pink-purple-blue combination.
What's different about today's card?
I am not using distress inks. 
Instead I used die inks from Stampin' Up and a water brush.

I also used Gina Marie Design wonky rectangle dies (I am loving them).

The rose and the sentiment are all part of the Rose Wonder stamp & die set from Stampin' Up

Keep on practicing and keep on coloring!

Rose Wonder by Stampin' Up

For today's card I am trying something new...watercoloring with distress inks. 
Not sure how I feel about it yet, but its a bit messy and hard to control. 

I do love this rose, I cut it using the Stampin ' Up Rose Wonder framelit.  

I used this card and others similar to it as my card for the June 2016 Birthday Club. 
 I do hope my recipients enjoy their cards.

Have a fun and colorful day!
