I have a second card for the hop, this card features the new Cup of Columbine Digital Stamp! The wonderful Marcella at Power Poppy, send the DT the digital set to play with! It's new just in time for the Spring/Summer hop!! It also comes in a clear set that has sentiments that the digi set doesn't; have.

To start I printed off the light grey version of the digi after I adjusted the size a little in Word. I printed it on watercolor cardstock. To color, I used my distress markers, marking them on a piece of acetate and using a paintbrush and water to color the image. I used these colors: Mowed Lawn, Forest Moss, Peeled Paint, Aged Mahogany, Victorian Velvet, Squeezed Lemonade, Fossilized Amber, Dusty Concord, Carved Pumpkin, Shaded Lilac, Gathered Twigs. I also googled Columbines to get an idea of the color patterns!

Since the image was printed in a light grey, I got a nice no line coloring look going with this digi!! Next, I stamped the sentiment Good Friends Procaffeinate Together in brown ink. The sentiment is from Gina K Designs Coffee set.

I found some pretty green pattern paper and wrapped some twine around it, tieing it in a bow. I trimmed down my coloring to a rectangle and rounded the corners. Then I used a Tim Holtz paper clip to attach it to the panel, I also used a little double sided tape to make sure it doesn't go anywhere. Last I added the panel to a white card base.

Thanks so much for stopping by!! Make sure you link up your coffee spring/summer themed project and check out all the other links for some great coffee inspiration!!
