I embossed a piece of Canson Watercolor paper. Then on the Craft Mat, I added some Vintage Photo Distress Ink and sprayed some water. Using some waterbrush, I mixed the ink and water and then I added the embossed paper in. And I used the waterbrush to add some more ink to cover the paper evenly.

For the cup and sentiment, I heat embossed them using Super Fine Ranger White Embossing Powder and then die cut them with the matching dies using my WRMk Evolution Advanced machine.

I added some Vintage Photo Distress Ink using make up sponge and smeared it around the images using my finger while the ink still wet for some shadowing.

I made a bow out of American Crafts twine and added on the cup using Tombow Mono Liquid Glue. And I finished the card with some sparkle gems.

  4. Nice to learn more about you – I’m originally a MI girl! I love your project for the hop. So much technique and detail, but my favorite is that your brown BG – just totally reminds me of coffee.
