Guest Designer for Adornit and Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop

Hello my fellow coffee loving friends!  I'm guest designing for Adornit and the  Coffee Loving Cardmakers Fall Blog HopAdornit is not only a lovely sponsor of the hop this time, but they are also about to release an entire host of new products, including an addition to their line of Art Play Paintables called, "Coffee Talk". 


Adornit has once again partnered with artist Lindsay Ostrom to design this line of Art Play.  Lindsay is truly gifted in lettering and doodling and I love her designs so much.  I fell in love with this image which obviously is paying homage to one of my favorite coffee hangouts. 



I used my Tombow dual brush markers, as my coloring medium, by swiping on an acrylic block and grabbing the color with my water brush.  Don't have an Adornit waterbrush?  Get yours, here.  Such a simple technique that always yields fantastic results.  You can also used your diluted ink to tap droplets all over your project.  Gel pens are another tool that I frequently use for added embellishment on my projects to make wording, flowers, or my background stand out.  Of course, this is a Fall themed blog hop so I've added some leaf buttons from Buttons Galore and embellished with twine and burlap string.



For this next image, I wanted to play around with orange and brown colors as those are typical Fall colors.   I'm once again using the same watercolor technique, however this time I'm using my Zig Clean Color markers, along with gel pens.  I've added some fun Fall embellishments and splattered a doily with orange misting spray.  The easiest way to splatter is to unscrew your misting bottle and just tap droplets onto your project.



Don't be afraid to play around with the letters.  Grab a white gel pen and add little dots or stripes.  I love that Lindsay added some white space when she designed her wording, so I can color it in to my liking.



 My final project has absolutely nothing to do with Fall.  Well, it does in a way, just not your typical Fall card.   I have to say, this is my absolute favorite image out of all 12 images that are included in the Coffee Talk line. 

Why?  It's perfect for so many occasions; get well, thinking of you,  or just because.   October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and it is a cause that is near and dear to my heart.  My mom and sister have both battled this disease (successfully!) and this image really spoke to me.  I wanted to make a BCA card that might inspire you to do the same. 



When Lindsay was coming up with ideas for the Coffee Talk line, I happily suggested this quote and I am absolutely tickled pink that it made the cut!   This is just one "out of the box" idea for using this image.  It's super versatile, which is what I love about it. 






 Adornit will be offering up a fun prize; their popular Halloween Coloring Book!  To qualify to win this prize, be sure to visit the link to the Fall Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop and follow instructions by entering your own coffee, cocoa or tea themed card and/or commenting on the participant entries.  Good luck!
