I was also inspired by Newton's Nook Inky Paws colour challenge (see inspiration graphic below). Newton's Nook is one of the Super Sponsors for the Summer Coffee Lovers' Blog Hop! I created a smooshed watercolour background using Abandoned Coral Distress Ink and two Tombow watercolour markers (873 and 243) on Canson 120-lb watercolour paper. I wanted to match up the colours as closely as possible to the graphic below.
I die-cut the watercolour panel with Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles. Simon Says Stamp is one of the sponsors for the Watercolour Blog Hop! I heat-embossed the kitty from Newton's Nook Newton's Antics in black and watercoloured him with Tombow markers, fussy-cut, and popped up with foam tape above a washi tape strip. I used the speech bubble from Newton's Nook Newton's Day Dream, heat-embossed it in white, fussy-cut, and popped up with foam tape. The sentiment is from The Greeting Farm Tea-riffic Clear Stamps and it is also heat-embossed in white.
The tea cup is from Top Dog Dies Teatime Decorative Die Set. Top Dog Dies is one of the Coffee Lovers' Super Sponsors! I die-cut the tea pot in black and a second one in a colour I created with a Tombow watercolour marker (243), layered them, and popped up with foam tape. The little puffs of steam are from Your Next Stamp Gingerbread House Die Set. Your Next Stamp is also one of the Coffee Lovers' Super Sponsors! I finished off the card with some sequins. Check out the awesome sequins available at Pretty Pink Posh!
I am also joining Kathy Racoosin's 30-Day Colouring Challenge at The Daily Marker. I was inspired by Day 4 - Watercolour.
