Winter 2016 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop – Sketched Green Cup of Hot Chocolate

Hi! I’m here with a card for the 2016 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

First, I drew the cup.
slide08Then I fussy cut it out.

I created the background by sponging green ink through a paper doily.

slide10I added some cream (acrylic paint) to the top of my hot chocolate. (I’m not a coffee drinker. 😉 )

I added some silver ink to the rim and handle of the cup.

slide09 I traced the cup image onto some copy/printer paper, created a mask and then sponged on the silvery-gray shadow to the left of the cup onto the white background. slide11 slide12  Thanks for stopping by!

Grace, Peace & Merry Christmas,

I was inspired by the green and white and the cozy feeling evoked by both Fusion and The Card Concept’s inspiration photos.

Then I fussy cut my cup out.

slide1I created the background by sponging red ink through a paper doily onto white cardstock. I stamped the sentiment in the same red.slide5I watercolored the hot chocolate. (I’m not a coffee drinker. 😉 )

slide6I made the curls of frothy foamy cream by stamping and heat embossing with my super prize (a very nice rubber background stamp) from the Fall CLBH! (I masked off a circle and then stamped in white pigment ink and heat embossed the stamped image.)
