The LEAD of this challenge will be invited to be a guest designer in an upcoming challenge!

 



I am playing along with the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  Since coffee is grown in tropical areas it works for both challenges!  It sure makes for one tasty tropical treat anytime of day hot or cold. I decided to create a coffee shaker card using actual coffee grounds.  I mixed in some sequins for added tropical flare!  My craft room smelled divine while making this tasty confection!   I chose to mix distress watercoloring with relaxing and de-stressing with a cuppa java!




For my card I used Verve's Better With You stamp set to create the watercolor distressed background.  I created a shaker and used Verve's Copper Blush Sequin Mix, Harvest Gold Sequin Mix, and Signature Sequin Mix.
I stamped and distressed watercolored two coffee mugs using Verve's Coffee stamp set and Cuppa Joe die set.
I spread some textured goosebumps to the coffee for added dimension and a wet look. 


As always thanks so much for hopping by!

Betty
