I made this card for the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop. This is the first time I’m linking up a card, as I don’t drink coffee so I don’t have many coffee related stamps. But I just found out that its for tea and chocolate drinkers too, and I LOVE my tea! I’ve had to give up the normal teas to avoid taking caffeine, but I have loads of herbal teas which I drink all day.

So I decided to make a card using Stamplorations beautiful Dog Roses stamp. I really love this stamp but its always a challenge for me to colour it properly to give it justice, which is why I keep on going back to it, as I LOVE a challenge!

This time I stamped it in clear Versamark ink and heat embossed it with clear Wow embossing powder. I then watercoloured it with my Winsor & Newton paints. Once it was dry, I covered it with the stamp and splattered gold paint all over the card. You can’t see it in the photo but the gold paint really shines!

I stamped the sentiment which comes from the same Stamplorations set with Versafine ink. To finish, I cut my panel with MFT blueprint 20 scallop rectangle die and adhered it to a red card base.

Well, I hope you liked my card and I look forward to reading your comments.

Thanks for stopping by!
