Coffee Saurus

Hi there,

this is my fifth creation using an image from the Gerda Steiner Designs February/March Digital Stamp Bundle and it's just perfect for the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

  • color the adorable Gerda Steiner Designs Coffee Saurus which is available as part of the Gerda Steiner Designs February/March Digital Stamp Bundle with Delta, Touch Twin and Copic Markers
  • add extra shading with Faber-Castell Polychromos Pencils
  • stamp coffee-related images from the STAMPlorations Coffee Petites set into the background using Versafine (Onyx Black) and color those images with Derwent Inktense Pencils and a watercolor brush
  • tear a strip of vellum and wrap it around the main panel
  • stamp the sentiment from the Gerda Steiner Designs Gopher it set with Versamark onto the vellum and heat-emboss it with WOW! Bright White Super Fine embossing powder
  • add a strip of brown cardstock and grid paper to the left side of the card before adhering it to the cardbase

Have fun joining the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.
