Share Joy Challenge #37

Hello, hello!

I am here to share the newest Taylored Expressions Share Joy Challenge! I used the fun color combo, along with some fun stamps and dies!

I started by taking the Joe To Go stamp and die set, and white heat embossed the coffee cup stamp randomly on a panel of watercolor paper. I then added washes of yellow, green, and blue paints, allowing them to blend, before allowing it to dry. Once it was, I die cut the cup image, and inserted it into a cup that had been die cut in the panel.

I added the sleeve, as well as a coffee bean, along with the sentiment, which was white heat embossed onto brown card stock.

I stamped the coffee bean image in brown, onto my white card base, and ink blended a bit around the edges, before adhering the panel with foam tape.

We would love to see you join us this week! The details are below!
