Coffee and Spring – The Perfect Combination!

Good morning, coffee lovers!
I am so excited to be participating in my very first Coffee Lovers Bloghop!
I adore this Perfect Blend stamp set from Dare 2B Artzy!  If there was ever a stamp set created for masking techniques, this is it!

After stamping my images with Dare 2B Artzy Totally Black Ink, I stamped the coffee cup onto Inkadinkado stamping mask paper.  I fussy cut each portion of the cup apart so I could mask off different portions of the cup as needed.  Then the wild and crazy stamping frenzy began!  I pulled out a plethora of stamps that had smaller images and had a party in my craft room!  As you can see from the image above, it looks like a crazy mess during the process, but once you take off the masks, the reveal is so much fun!
These are the cups after masking and a little coloring.  I used the following Copic markers:
YG13, G02
R43, R14, R24
BG01, BG02
Highlights were added with Sakura Glaze pens 821, 805, 825, 849, and 800.

I used the stitched rectangle from the Leaf Background Die to cut a piece of Paisley Paper which I mounted on a piece of melon colored card stock.  The cups were then stacked on the front of the card with some of them being adhered with foam tape.

I hope you have a great Monday and get to spend some time enjoying this fabulous blog hop!  Dare 2B Artzy is a super sponsor of the hop.  You could win a prize from them as well as a discount during the hop!

Happy hopping! As the sentiment in the Perfect Blend stamp set says, “May your coffee be strong and your Mondays be short!”
