Atlantic Hearts Sketch 218 Meets Coffee Lovers - Day 4


Welcome to this week's Atlantic Hearts Sketch!  This week is also the Summer 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and I'm playing along with this card for Day 4.

Well, you really can't get any more coffee than this!  I started by smooshing, splashing, and splattering coffee on some watercolor paper.  Once that was dry, I used the coffee beans from the Paper Sweeties But First, Coffee stamp set, stamped in Versamark and embossed in gold.  Then I used some watercolor to color in the beans.


This sentiment is from the Coffee, Yes Please stamp set and the cup is from You Warm My Heart.


I love these sweet flowers from the Hello Spring stamp set and I took the opportunity to scatter around a few of my favorite gold sequins!


So thanks for stopping!  I had so much fun creating this background that I think I'll make some more to have on hand... and they're right... it does smell pretty darn good too!


Be sure to check out this week's Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge!  This feels like a sketch I could use over and over and never tire of it!  And while you're at it... create something coffee, tea or hot cocoa and summer (you know, flowers yes, snowflakes no) and play along over there too!  Lots of prizes and many sponsors giving away free digis!
