Last weekend I went to a Stamp & Scrap Expo in my area with my best crafting buddy. It was the first time I had gone to one of these and I had a great time! I came back with a lot of new toys including the Technique Junkie stamp featured on this card.
This stamp is a new addition to my coffee-themed stamp collection, which is still growing. I first stamped the cute little owl with Versafine and stamped it again with Versamark in my MISTI, then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I colored her with Altenew Watercolors that I also got at the Expo. I struggle with water coloring but these Altenew colors blended so easily. Next, I die-cut the image with Nestabilities and mounted it on DP. I accented with Nuvo Crystal dots and roughly traced around the DP with Early Espresso marker. The sketch is from the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog.
