Yippee Coffee Card

Hello and Welcome!

Have you checked out the Amy's Coffee Lovers Blog Hop?! So many amazing projects by so many creative people - wow! Here is my newest entry using the new Tim Holtz Crayons:



Just got a set of Tim Holtz bright crayons and needed to try them out. I had so much fun!!! I scribbled them on watercolor paper, layering in a few different colors, then with water and my finger smudged and blended it. I kept adding color and water until I was happy. If you like watercolor and want more control & intensity with the colors, this is a great medium.

In creating this card I was inspired by the challenge photo at Waffleflower. The sentiment, "yippee" is my new favorite and is part of Waffleflower's "Congrats" stamp set. The little "YAY" logo is also part of that set. The coffee cup is a stamp by Tim Holtz and was colored with Copic markers and fussy cut. The bright flowers are from Waffleflower's DT Mix stamp set and were stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with neon powders by Recollections, then fussy cut. To finish things off I cut the colored panel with a stitched die-cut by Simon Says Stamp (Bundle of Stitched Shapes) added a few gems to the flowers and stickles to whipped cream.

Thanks for stopping by,
