Day One Coffee Loving Cardmakers Summer Blog Hop

I'm so excited for day one of the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Summer Blog Hop!  The record was broken at the Spring Hop, for the number of participants and we certainly hope that trend continues.  We have new, amazing sponsors in addition to the many who continue to support this happy little caffeinated group.  





For today's project, I'm putting my drawing and watercoloring skills to work.








I will often Google images that I want to recreate and that is the case for my flamingo.  I shared this side by side comparison of my drawing, from the Googled photo, on my social media awhile back.




I used my Adornit watercolor pencils and water brush to color all my hand drawn images; the flamingo, the ocean with reflection of the flamingo, and the palm tree. 








I felt like I should include at least one stamped image, after all, this is a group who loves stamping.  So, I used the Sweet Stamp Shoppe image from the Cuppa Coffee stamp set and did some no line watercoloring.  For this, I used my Tombow dual brushes to swipe on my stamp a faint outline in blue, then orange for my summer beverage.






My triple stacked and popped up sentiment is courtesy of Stamplorations Hello Sunshine die.  I watercolored this as well, and added a coating of clear Nuvo Crystal drops for shine.  It is gorgeous in person!  My flamingo and sentiment were colored on Strathmore watercolor paper 300 series. 
Lastly, I stenciled some Bo Bunny Sugar Glitter Paste on my sky and water, and colored a few on top with a yellow Tombow dual brush marker after they were heat dried.  I'm using an A7 sized Bazzill card (scallop trimmed off)  that has been slightly trimmed down, and Adornit scrapbook paper designed by Laura Kelly Designs.





Be sure and create something new that is summer themed and includes a coffee, tea or cocoa image.  It can be a summer drink, even.  Think frappucino!  Then, be sure and join our challenge as there will be a ton of prizes up for grabs.
