2017 Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop



Hello!!

Today is the day for the 2017 Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!! I can't wait to see all the great summer and coffee themed cards!! My card is a little tongue in cheek, fun card! Last hope I won a gift card and got some new Hero Arts stamps that I really wanted to use sooo....

To-da!!! Coffee and a shark!!! What could be better and more summery!?!?!? :D

I started with a panel of watercolor paper, placing a Simon Says Stamp Waves stencil on top. Then with three different Distress Inks, I watercolored in the open spaces of the lower half of the stencil. I controlled the water I used as I didn't want too much bleeding going on.

While that was drying I found a gray scrap card stock and I stamped the shark head from Hero Arts Killer Messages set on it in gray ink. With my versamark marker, I colored the inside of the mouth and added a little shading. With a white opaque pen, I colored in the teeth!!!

My coffee cup came from Waffle Flower's Bear & Bird stamp set, I colored it with one of the blue Distress Inks. Then I fussy cut it and the sharks head out. I placed both on my panel and when I liked their placement I added them with foam tape.  With Distress Markers, I added the fishing pole and fishing line.

My sentiment came from My Favorite Things Stay Cool stamp set, I thought it went really well with my shark and coffee card!! I cut a strip of the sentiment and added it across the bottom of the card with foam tape!
