Hello and welcome!  Susie hosting the blog today and I am so very happy to help us kick off the Fall Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!  I am sharing a card that features some wonderful "coffee inspired"  PowderPuff Chalking Ink colors!


I started by stamping a coffee bean background using Java.


I stamped a doll image on watercolor paper with archival black ink. I then chose Latte PowderPuff Chalking Ink to provide the skin tone on my stamped image. I stamped the ink onto my craft mat, spritzed on some water and used a paintbrush to watercolor the image.


In the same manner, I water colored the hair with Java.

The jacket was colored with Bora Bora and the dress was colored with Slate.


I stamped the sentiment in black ink and then added the coffee mug, colored with Bora Bora, on top.


The finishing touch was the sprinkling of blue and brown rhinestones.

PowderPuff Chalking Inks: Java, Latte, Slate, Bora Bora
