Just popping in quickly for another card for the Fall Coffee Lover's Blog Hop, inspired by the sketch over at CAS(E) This Sketch and the colours over at Just Us Girls. I'm also linking up over at CAS Mix Up where the theme is stamping + watercolour wash + your choice (die cutting) and AAA Cards where the theme is Autumn Colours. I used a NBUS STAMPlorations set called What's Brewing. I absolutely adore the strong lines and graphic look of these stamps and they really came out great stamped in Distress Oxide ink. I added some water onto the stamped image with a watercolour brush to oxidise the ink. I also added just a little bit of shading to the coffee mug and the steam from the coffee pot using Distress Oxide, and then coloured the wrapper around the mug with the same orange and red Distress Ink I used for the background.
