Imagine Crafts was so kind to allow us to choose some yummy inks to play with.  I chose to work with the Brilliance Pigment Ink Dewdrops.  They dry quickly but also stay wet long enough to heat emboss, if you so desire.




For my card, I chose to use a smooshing technique with a watercolor paper panel.  I mixed some of my colors too, to get an orange-ish hue, as well.  The colors I'm using today are Rocket Red, Sunflower yellow, Coffee Bean, Pearlescent Chocolate, Cosmic Copper, Pearlescent Rust and Moonlight White.  To achieve the orange hue, I mixed the yellow and red together.  This is such a fun technique and always gives great results,  just dab your ink on a craft mat, spritz with water and smoosh your watercolor paper into the mix.  I did this twice, drying with me craft heat tool inbetween smooshing.




For my one-liner word, I masked my sentiment and stamped with my Misti, the word "procaffeinating" from the Procaffeinating stamp using the Brilliance Moonlight White ink, heat embossing with white embossing powder to really make it pop.  I used a leftover piece from my trimmed watercolor panel to stamp and heat emboss part of my sentiment on the inside.  I heat embossed, using the Cosmic Copper for the inside sentiment.




To color my coffee, I stamped the cup with the Pearlescant Chocolate, then used the Copper Rust for the Coffee Heart stamped image (inside the cup).  I dabbed some of the Coffee Bean and Chocolate ink on a craft mat and used my waterbrush to mix and swirl the colors.  A touch of Moonlight White was used on my hearts.




I have shopping links to most of the products used today, further down.  Next, be sure and hop on over to Jennifer Vanderbeek's blog.  If you get lost or need to start at the beginning, visit  the Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps blog.  Thanks so much for stopping by and good luck!
