Coffee Lovers take two!

Hidey ho crafty friends!  I am back with a second card for the Coffee Lovers blog hop!  Remember, you can find full details and the link up right HERE.

Today's post is another quickie!  So let's start with a picture of my completed card!


For this card I started with a piece of watercolor paper.  I embossed the coffee image with white embossing powder.  This cup is from the Altenew Coffee with a Splash set.  I've been trying to find a way to use this set and this was the perfect chance.  I then blended on three different colors of distress ink for an ombre look.  I used Antique Linen, Vintage Photo and Ground Espresso.  I splattered on clean water, let it sit for a few moments and then blotted it up with a paper towel.

Once it was dry I added the sentiment from The Ton's Caffiene Crush set.  I used Versafine black ink and clear embossing powder.  I used my corner chomper to round two of the corners.  I added craft foam to the back and glued it to a white card base.  For the final little bit of shine, I added Ivory crystals from Pretty Pink Posh.  Ta da!

I am hopeful that I can get at least one more card made before the challenge is over.  Thanks for popping in!
