It’s summer and time for another card designed for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. And this has to be Iced Coffee and the beach for me!
For the panel I used watercolour paper. I stamped the images from two Tim Holtz Bluprint Sketch stamp sets, mixing coffee and beach. I stamped in Versamark and heat embossed in white. Then I added a light wash of Distress Inks in the colours peacock feathers and twisted citron. After drying it, I added more of the blue to the images. Finally I flicked on a bit more of the bright green and cut the panel with a wonky stitched rectangle die.
To add the sentiment, I cut apice of vellum, so as not to loose the pattern on the panel. I heat embossed part of sentiment in the same white I used before. For the die cut word I doubled up two layers of cardstock. The little starfish is coloured using Hero Arts neon ink.
After adhering all the pieces together, I matted the panel on Kraft cardstock for a beachy feel. This I added on a white card base.
I think the card has finished up with a cool iced coffee feel to it. Enjoy the summer!
