Coffee Lovers: Thanks a Pool-Sized Latte! Card

Have you ever wondered what it’d be like to wake up one winter morning to have the ground covered in snow and your pool full of hot coffee with cute little foam animals floating all over? ‘Dive in!’ you say?! The current Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: B is for ? = Big, Bodacious Blue pool full of coffee with foam Bears (and cats)!! That’s where my crazy imagination took me for today’s Coffee Lovers Hop card:

The hand drawn and fussy-cut pool of ‘coffee’ has a liquid look due to glossy accents:

The inside of the card and the back of the envelope continue the theme:

The ‘Thanks a pool-sized latte!’ sentiment was done on the computer. To get the soft singed edges on the foam critters, I used Polychromos pencils and Gamsol.

Supplies:

  • Hero Arts Foam Animals stamp set
  • Tsukineko Memento Desert Sand dye ink
  • Faber-Castell Polychromos colored pencils:Cobalt Green; Light Cobalt Turquoise; Caput Mortuum Violet; Burnt Sienna; Raw Umber
