I started wetting one corner of my Tim Holtz water colour paper with a big brush and clean water and then applied a wash of pink, because i was using this week's Mojo Monday sketch as my starting point.
I added a little orange for some variation before drying my piece with a heat tool. I added splatters of pink and brown, drying in between. I then used two stitched dies by Simon Says Stamp to cut a rectangular panel and the round corner. I stamped the coffee cups (Holiday treats by Verve - they have been waiting to be inked up for a long, long time) in chocolate brown ink (PTI) and die cut the cups using the matching die. I added a small scribble using a pink Aquamarker (Letraset) and spread the colour a little using a damp paint brush. For the sentiment I combined a die cut (SSS; more NBUS that finnaly gets some love) with a heat-embossed word (All year round, Paula Pascual) in white (SSS) on vellum. I popped up the corner panel, one of the cups and part of the sentiment using foam tape and popped the entire panel up on a top-folding card made from Neenah Desert storm cardstock. To finish things off, I went over the coffee cups using my clear Wink of Stella and adhered a number of sequins (espresso by Pretty Pink Posh; even more NBUS) using Multi-medium matte.
