Missing my Coffee

Well, finally I took some photos as I worked! I started out by writing coffee, coffee, coffee...all over this piece of watercolor paper with a Molotow masking pen and let that dry.


Next, I took my watercolors and dripped them down the paper.


Then I rubbed off the masking fluid to get this cool design!


Love my freshly brewed coffee, and this Blueprint stamp from Tim Holtz! So, I stamped it onto the card, and used water to remove some of the color from the cup.


Added the "missing you." If my coffee is not around, I do miss it, but this could also be sent to a friend who is missed. I found this old Stampers Anonymous "Saying Stuff" set to use with the word frame. 


I am offering blog candy for the hop and you can find the details here.


It has been another wonderful hop, and I want to give a big SHOUT OUT to Amy Tsurata and  Chaitali Narla at Coffee Loving Cardmakers for hosting another fabulous hop!! You gals ROCK!! When this is over, be sure to fill up a big mug and find a spot to sip and relax!
