Love You More Than Coffee

This week’s theme is girlie and I used a new Penny Black stamp for my card today.  I love you more than coffee is a cute girlie stamp and the sentiments with it are very cute.  I kept it simple, but I had to do it three times before she turned out the way I wanted her.

I saw another card using Penny Black stamps that had the monochrome watercolor with just a splash of color and this stamp came to mind.  I colored the stamp with a dark gray Tombow Marker and using my MISTI stamped the image.  I colored the image a second time with the same marker and lightly misted it with water to get a nice dark outline.  I used Versafine Black Onyx ink on the sentiment.  I let the image dry.  Then I took a nice dark blue Tombow marker and put some ink down on an acrylic block.  I wet my brush and added the blue to the coffee cup.  I also ran my wet brush along the outline of her image as well as on some of the lines of her hair.  Where ever I imagined a shadow – I ran the wet brush on the dark line to get a little more color.

Heather Telford’s Venetian Summer was the inspiration for my card.

Heather’s work has inspired me quite a bit lately.  I’ll share another girlie card she inspired later this week.

Thank you for stopping by the blog today.  Tune in tomorrow for some more girlie fun.

Have a great day and enjoy the journey.
