Spring is Blooming...

FSJ Super Sponsor:  Kerry Urbatch, FSJ Independent Coach #401
Hello there Coffee Loving Cardmakers!  Today's Thursday and I'm joining my fellow Coffee Lovers in a HUGE celebration!  The Spring Coffee Lovers Hop broke another amazing record!  We're at 1,000+ link-ups and still going!  WOOP!  Can you believe it?  I sure can!  

I'm sharing one of my last cards for the hop and it was so fun to create!  Check it out!  
To create this card I spritzed some FSJ Splashes (Cool Pool, Sour Lemon, Turbo Teal) on a craft mat. I spritzed some water on that to create a pool of yummy color.  I dipped my Whip Cream cardstock into the color pool and immediately dried the paper.  SO delish!  After that, I rubbed some Clear (Colorless Blender) PanPastel over the colored panel to remove any static then applied the Butterfly stamp from Bold Wings stamp set (February Bloom Box) using Clear Pigment Ink and White Embossing Powder. 
After that, I stamped the coffee shop easel (from Le Cafe stamp set) using Black Licorice ink, hand lettered the sentiment and colored with my FSJ Color Splash Watercolor pencils.  I rubbed over this panel with some Cool Pool PanPastel (in the Confectionary Days Collection) to give it some softness.
I doodled some flowers and dots using a Micron pen and colored with Cosmic Grape Silk and Silver Journey Marker.  The stamped/colored panel was mounted onto a Kraft card base and was embellished with some Watermelon Fusion ribbon and a few pearls.

Thanks for popping by today!  I hope you've enjoyed the hop and I look forward to finding out who the winner of my inky Super Sponsor prizes are!  See you soon!
