2017 Fall Coffee Lovers' Bloghop project 5

I am on my project number 5 for the 2017 Fall Coffee Lovers' Blobhop.  For today's card I used two Altenew clear stamp sets and one Hero Arts set.


I am quite happy how it turned out.  And the technique is simple.  I stamped all the images on watercolor paper and thick card stock with Archival ink.  For the background I wet each area where I want color with water first, then slightly add watercolor.  The small leaves are stamped with distress ink.  On the banner, the sentiment is stamped directly onto the vellum.  The coffee press and macaroons are stamped on cream color CS, watercolored, trimmed and adhered.  I use a decorative stitch die on the edge of the banner.  You may see it better in the close up.
