Twofer Post 'Love you more than coffee' and 'You are beautiful'


I decided to do a card for one of the coffee challenges that are on. I absolutely love coffee, cant image starting the day without coffee, cant be human nice without my coffee but have only one rubber stamp in reference to coffee and one digital so its obvious I like to drink it mainly.

I love this image from Mo's digital Pencil and decided to get it finally. She looks just how I look first thing in the morning (in my dreams lol). Coloured with copics.




Very easy image to colour and comes with the sentiment so makes for a very quick easy card. I forgot to do the steam coming out of the coffee so you will just have to image I have just finished drinking it and I'm using the last bit of heat in the cup to get my fingers to loosen up ready to take the day on.

I finished her off with the brilliant green sparkly gem heart that just doesn't show up properly in the photos so you will just have to trust me on that. It does sparkle and was going to be up in the upper region of the card but then a bit of random colour smudge appeared out of nowhere just above the 'love word' so a bit of rearranging was done. the wee little flower on the mug also sparkle very prettily IRL.

Another Vellum card front down with Zigs.




I love the Hero Art floral background stamp I have used here. If you know me you know I do as its dotted quite regularly throughout my card postings. Again I have white embossed on vellum.


Painting with yellow and a wee bit of orange zig to add shadow and depth. I cover all the petals with the pale yellow zig first then come back into each petal looking for where I want the shadow and add a very very small amount of orange. It goes a long way. I add a second layer of yellow coming into the orange last and I wipe the tip off if it changes to orange too much, to bring the yellow back in. I hope you can understand what Im saying here. You really don't need too much orange.
I did the leaves the same way using a light and dark green. 


I cut the panel out with a stitched rectangle die but you cant see it on the vellum so then I decided to cut the card base slightly wider, added a 1/2 inch of gold mirror cardstock each side. Glued the vellum where it wouldn't show through.
Added  'you are beautiful' sentiments that come with 'handsome' and 'wonderful' as well from Papersmooches. A few pretty gold sparkly gems and I am happy.
