Today is a Good Day

Hi all!  Today I have a card for the Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop:

TH2015Stamp1a

I did a Fall colored watercolor background with my new Gansai Tambi watercolor paints and stamped the Tim Holtz Stamptember 2015 Coffee stamp on it.  I cut it out with the largest of the Stitched Rectangle die set from Your Next Stamp.

I stamped the image again on a scrap of watercolor paper and watercolored it.  Then I traced the outline of the cup and sign onto a piece of acetate with a wet erase marker.  I used this acetate with my Scan N Cut machine to get it to cut out just the cup portion.  I added that to the background with some foam tape.  Here you can see the dimension:

Here’s a start to finish video:

And here’s THE LINK in case you can’t see the video player above.

This is also for the SSS Monday Challenge – Use a stamp and SSS Wednesday Challenge – No Designer Paper.  I hope you like it and TFL!  And enjoy the Hop!!
