All the goodness of Life in a cup

Monday September 18, 2017
 
This is day 4 of the Fall Coffee Lovers blog hop
 and I am back with another card

This is my card. I added Ranger Oxide inks to the background and spritzed with water. I then took Bristol smooth paper and added various colors of Mission paints. I let them dry. I then took my Simon Says stitched leaves die and cut out quite a few. I still have more left over even after adding all of these below. I did take some Oxide ink and added just a smidge of color where it needed more color. I then stamped and embossed a Verve sentiment and just free hand cut it out. I stamped and embossed Tim Holtz crazy bird and colored with Mission paints. I cut an extra wing as I wanted it to look like he was holding the giant to go coffee cup which is a die from Simon Says and colored with Mission paints. I then added all the elements to the card base.  This is a fun card and this wise bird has one heck of a giant cup of coffee and I think that is why his eyes are so buggy.. I think the caffeine just hit him.. LOL
