Coffee cards and winner

Today I want to share a technique with you

It is with watercoloring and embossing.
Even though I have not all the right attributes,
I have given it a try with materials I have.

For my cards I have used the coffee cup stamps by
Michael Strong and some sentiments from

This is the tutorial I found on You Tube
and when you watch it you see here there are

Here is the 2nd card I made. I had a lot of fun and
will try it with other images again.

And now for the winner of my blog candy from last week:

Ooohhh! They are both great, but I like the second one with the offset coffee cups in the corner. The watercoloring looks great! Great job with the shading!

Your cards are just BEAUTIFUL!! Love both of them! You did a great job with the "embossing and then coloring technique". Love the colors you created and also how you added some grey to the white space around the cups and the steam! Perfect!!! THanks, too, for sharing the YouTube link!!!
