Atlantic Hearts and Coffee Hop Day 4 1/2!


Happy Monday aka Day 4 of the Coffee Lovers Bloghop!  I've been wanting to use the stamps I won from Skipping Stones Design in August for a while now so I decided this week's Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge was a good opportunity to do it...


So... my intention was to make a CAS card...lol... which didn't quite work out as such, but I'm happy so I guess that doesn't matter...lol!  The bird on this one came from Skipping Stones Designs Best of Birds along with the sentiment and music notes and the coffee cup is from their Coffee Volume #2 set.  They have quite a few coffee sets and a whole bunch more beautiful stamp sets and you should check them out!  Thanks so much Skipping Stones!!!!


I used my CDD Flag Banner Dies for a lot of these banners.  The coffee die is from Your Next Stamp and I love the font.  Those pretty paper flowers are from Hobby Lobby and of course!  some gold Paper Sweeties sequins.  (Don't you love that plaid banner from the Lawn Fawn Fall Plaid paper pad?)


I stamped this pretty bird in a light brown to kind of try a no-line look and then used my Zig watercolor pens to add some color... this bird actually does have some print on it... music notes and such and you can see it in person, but it's hard to see in these pics... but I like that it's very subtle.


I made the decision to have my cup be very bright in comparison to the Fall leaves and I love the way it turned out.  I made sure to add a little yellow to the banners at the top to move that color around a bit.  The leaves in the background were stamped onto the base piece using a very old CTMH leaf stamp set and then watercolored similar to the bird and the dimensional leaves were left over from a previous CTMH card I made with the October Stamp of the Month.


So here is the sketch...lol!  And I just realized I forgot to add the three little... sequins, sparkles, buttons... whatever to the bottom left corner but I'm not looking back... I'm running with it!

Hope you come to play along with us this week at Atlantic Hearts!  And be sure to come back tomorrow... I'm thinking maybe a little CDD action.... thanks for stopping today!
