Ok! On to my card!! I started by printing out the image and sentiments!! Being a digital stamp you can resize them to fit your needs!! Then I used my Spectrum Noir Markers to color the image, I used: AB1, AB2, AB3, AP1, AP2, AP4, BG3, BG4, BG6, BG7, BG8, BT9, CG2, DG3, DR7. Then I fussy cut around the image and one of the sentiments.

For my background, I used the leftover negative of a foil transfer! For the other project, I used a stencil and added liquid adhesive from Therm O Web, kind of like embossing paste! But since its glue as soon as your done, wash it! I let the adhesive totally dry! Also, note that depending on how careful you are or want to be some glue can get under the stencil. It can give a nice not perfect/aged look to it. The stencil I used was Simon Says Stamp Dots and Lines.

When the adhesive was dry I added Therm O Web's Deco Gold Foil to the panel. The gold sticks to the adhesive. What's left over is the negative part of the stencil on the transfer foil and this is what I used on my card. I just added the transfer foil to a piece of adhesive cardstock and that panel was added to a white card base.

Next, I added a strip of brown cardstock with foam dots along with my colored image on top. I applied some light brown ink to the sentiment as the white cardstock was too stark against the card. The sentiment went next to the coffee cup and last I added a few sequins and cork dots.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Your next stop in the hop is the super talented Erin Theim!
