Dare 2B Artzy Guest Designer Week #2

Hello & Happy Sunday Crafty Friends!
I'm back as Guest Designer for
Dare 2B Artzy during the month of January!

I'm just so Excited to be their Guest Designer
and I'm totally Lovin this Super CUTE

Check out what I created with it this week --

I started out by stamping the Cup & Topping images on some
Tim Holtz Water Color paper, using my Misti Tool &
some Versafine Onyx Black ink

Then I pulled out My Zig Real Brush Pens to
color up my images - I also Pulled out my
White & Clear Wink of Stella Pens to color the
Topping images - I thought they should sparkle! 

Once I got the mugs colored I thought it was time to 
pick some matching Papers & Dies --
I pulled out some Doodlebug Paper and a piece of Vellum
Then I added a couple of Rectangle Stitched dies & a Doily die

 I decided I wanted to use a stencil & make my own background - 
So I pulled this adhesive back dotted swirl stencil from my stash and 
grabbed some Distress Inks to match up with my mugs --
I did some masking off since I didn't want the colors
all over my white cardstock piece --

Here's a close up so you can see how I mixed the colors
together with the swirls - I tried to use different shades
of purples, blues, & grey... After I was done I
used a stitch die to cut out my cardstock - 
the final size is 3 1/4 x 4 1/2

This is my card completed - I Cut the Vellum with the Doily Die
because I wanted the swirls in the background to stand out --
It adds just enough to also make the mug Pop!

I cut a strip of grey Designer Paper and Stamped the sentiment 
with Versamark ink then Heat Embossed it with some 
Fine White Embossing powder - then I cut the ends
to give it that banner look - I also POPPED up my
Yummy Topping for just a little extra dimension - 

I had SOOOO MUCH Fun Making this card!
I can't wait to mail it off to one of my Crafty Friends!

Thanks for stopping by today!

This card is so pretty! The swirl dots were a great touch to add. I agree that using vellum for your doily really let that background pop while still showcasing the mug.
