CLC Thursday Coffee Break: Thanks A Latte

Hello everyone…Happy Thursday. I hope you all so far have a fabulous week. It’s been a rainy week for us, but we had some good day to enjoy the Spring outside.

Today, I am sharing a mixed media card for Thursday Coffee Break at Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog. This project is also a CASE card inspired by our CASEing DT Link Up Party #12.

I created the background with Ken Oliver Color Burst Powder, Imagine Crafts – FireWorks! London Fog Spray, Broken Glass – ARTplorations Stencil, and Perfect Pearl Spray Mixture.

I added some of the Color Burst powder on the craft mat, spray with Perfect Pearl spray, and then smoosh in the canson watercolor paper in it to create the first wash. I dried in between blending and smooshing the ink. And then I added the stencil on the panel and spray the London Fog FireWorks! spray on it. I picked up the stencil right away to avoid the sipping under the stencil.

Once the panel dried, I run it through my die cutting machine with one of the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies – CUTplorations. And added it on my card base with Tombow Xtreme Adhesive.

I added a silver paper doily from my stash with one of the pierced circle die cut on it.

I stamped the Cup of Roses from A Cup of Roses stamp set – STAMPlorations on canson watercolor paper with Mini Misti and Versafine Onyx Black ink pad. Then I colored it with Koi Watercolors Paint and I added glitter with Wink Of Stella brush. After the paint dried, I fussy cut it with micro-tip scissors and I added it on the card with 3D foam tape.

Then I die cut the sentiment using Thanks A Latte Phrase Die – CUTplorations and pink cardstock and added it on the card with 3D foam tape.

That’s my card today. I like taking a break and coloring with any kind of medium. How about you?
