This is my first card made with this set, later in the week I'll be sharing two more!! First I added one of the coffee images to a Word document. I resized it, making it a little one big side, then I added an sentiment.

After printing the image I used my Copic markers to color the image. When I printed the image I had an idea of what I was going to do with it, but as I started to create the card, I went in a totally different direction!! Instead of leaving most of the white around the image, I fussy cut out all out instead.

Then I made the background by doing some watercolor smooching with Altenew watercolors. I used a heat gun in between the orange and light purple, both colors to match my coffee cup. Then I cut the panel out with a stitched rectangle and adhered it to a black card base.

Next, I added the image with foam tape and then added a few rhinestones for some sparkle! Since the image fell over the edge, I did trim a little off.
