Summer Coffee Lovers Hop Day 5: Coffee Buzz!

Hey there happy hoppers!  It's the FIFTH day of the hop and by now you should pretty much have a coffee lovers BUZZ!!!  So to show how WIRED I am, I jumped out of my color comfort zone and went a little WILD!  I slapped my coffee cup stamp onto an acrylic block, pulled out some of my favorite FSJ acrylic paints, gel medium, modeling paste, grabbed a flower-ish stencil and got MESSY!  
I decided this time I would go all mixed media and create something wild and crazy...and of course ME being a person who loves adding layers upon layers of ribbon, papers and medium...I just couldn't hold back!  
Here she is in all her vibrant glory!  A bit much?  ehhh???  I don't know.  I'm kinda diggin' it...or, maybe it's the coffee buzz talking.  Either way, another one in the books!  :)
 After stamping the cups with Black Licorice ink, I painted them a bit with some of my FSJ reinkers and some blending solution, then applied Prismacolor pencils on them for added color.  I fussy cut those babies out and set them aside for the collage.  I also cut out the leftover parts from some flower diecuts I had sitting around.  It's nice to use these scraps too!
Of course, I had to add a SWEET sentiment and some little candy dots!  :)  Hope you enjoyed my creation and I'll see you tomorrow for round 6 of my Coffee Lovin' Crafty Adventure!
