Here’s my inspiration card for the December/January Challenge:


I am using the new Coffee Love stamp set from Joy Clair. I stamped the coffee mug on a A2 size Canson Watercolor paper with Versafine Onyx Black. Then I colored it with ADORNit Watercolor Pencils and watercolor brush. Then I picked up some pigment directly from the dark brown watercolor pencils with wet watercolor brush and added some splatters on panel. Once it dried, I run it through my die cutting machine and cut it with ODBD Custom Die – Double Stitched Rectangles Dies. And I added the pannel on a A2 kraft card base with Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue for the frame and 3D foam tape for the panel.

For the sentiment, I created a marble look paper with some Tombow Dual Brush markers and water on a piece of Canson watercolor paper. I dried each layer to create the marble look. Then I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black ink and die-cut it with one of the new ODBD Custom Dies – Pennant Flags Dies. And I added it on the card with 3D foam tape.

I finished my card with some clear gems to give it extra bling 🙂 I hope you all will play along with Joy Clair Monthly Challenge this December 2016 and January 2017!
