My coffee of choice is flavored, black, and strong. I usually do have a bit of leftovers that end up getting dumped the next morning, but today I decided to use the wonderfully fragrant (coconut caramel), wonderfully black leftovers to paint my soft and cuddly bear. I have (what I think is) my last card for the Spring Coffee Lover's Blog Hop.
I started with a light wash of coffee onto watercolor paper. I had attempted this a couple of time, until I realized that the coffee couldn't touch the ink so the ink wouldn't bleed. I dried the coffee between layers, building up the caramel color.
I finished the card design by coloring some balloons with Zig Markers based on the MFT Color Challenge 41, and a sentiment. I popped the bear panel with foam dots and adhered to an embossed card base that had been wrapped with a light yellow silk ribbon.
And yep! The card does smell deliciously like Coconut Caramel Coffee!
