Now my card.


Coffee solves everything, don't you agree?!  LOL  

I computer generated the sentiment and printed it on white paper, and trimmed.  They then go on a watercolor panel I created by spritzing the whole watercolor paper panel with water, and drop in a few colors like yellow, pink, and a very soft brown, and splattered some Glimmer Metallic Gold Ink.  My coffee cup is adorned with a very delicate die cut (Hero Arts Holiday Greenery Fancy Die), I painted with some glimmer metallic gold ink as well.  Here's a closer look of the shimmery goodness.



Supplies:

Watercolors

Love the cup, especially what you've done with that greenery die. You've given me inspiration on more uses of that die. I do love it and it isn't just a Xmas die anymore.

Your background is gorgeous, reminds me of a morning sunrise, an EARLY sunrise.
