2018 Spring + Summer Coffee Bloghop card 4

Happy Monday everybody, hope it is a good start of the week for you!!

It's day four of the 2018 Spring + Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop, my card today is inspired by summer vacation.  You know summer vacation often involve the ocean/the sea, so I came up this idea.


I got a Cracked Texture embossing folder and to me it looks a giant coral.  So I applied tumble glass onto the embossed panel, stamp my sentiment (probably should have done this first), and added my sweet mermaid and her gigantic coffee, both were stamped in Jet Black and watercolored.  To add a bit of shine, I added Clear Wink of Stella on her tail, and Sprinkled Sugar on the cup.  Here's close up.



Other Challenges: 



Supplies:

Hero Arts Color Layering Seahorse (sentiment from this set)
Ranger Distress Ink (Tumbled Glass, Bundled Sage)
Ranger Archival Ink (Jet Black)
Watercolors
Wink of Stella (Clear)
Ranger Stickles (Sprinkled Sugar)

Thanks for visiting.  I wish you a sweet day!

What a fantastic use of the Cracked Texture embossing folder--your brain did a really creative somersault there. It's a beautiful card. Thanks for sharing... I'm going to go flex my brain now and see if I can do something creative.

Loving that emboss folder - what a great way to use it. And what a brilliant way to incorporate a cup off coffee into a sea scene!
