Happy Saturday!

Time to play along with the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast and today we are being inspired by the Starbucks site.  Coffee and stamping.....goodness.
Here is the cup I was inspired by:

I began by die-cutting the flowers using a die from Memory Box.  I love the look of the delicate flowers.  Using some temporary adhesive, I glued the flowers to my watercolour paper.  
Then I sprinkled Brushos over the top and sprayed with water.
TIP:  Remove the masks immediately after spraying with water so the paint won't saturate the paper you used for masking and blur your image.

Adding my card to these challenges:

(my coffee and stamping time are very precious to me!)

  17. Hi Karen, I have been admiring all your beautiful cards for a while now and I just love your Brusho cards, so much so that I put a request in for a Brusho set for my birthday. This is the card I have made with my new set by casing one of my favourite cards you have made.
