Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop: Copic Color Wash

Hello Crafters! 

It's that time of year again where those of us who are madly in love with coffee celebrate two of our favorite things. 

Coffee and cards! 
I absolutely adore the Coffee Lover's Blog, and the Spring hop is my favorite. Why? First, Flowers. Which shockingly I did not use on this card. Second,  I am never without my coffee. For real. I have no idea how my body runs on so little water. ;/ I'm basically walking around like 82.9% dehydrated at all times. I'm sure of it. 


I wanted to try something a little out of my comfort zone since this card was strictly for fun :) I put together a quick video showing you how I got there. I hope you enjoy! 


I really do like how the background came out even if I'm not doing kart wheels over the whole card. Part of the fun in crafting is learning what you like and what you don't like. However, that Aurora Borealis sky sounds pretty cool. I might actually give it a try. 



If you haven't seen the hop yet you can see all the gorgeous entries here, or hey enter yourself. It's an endless pool of inspiration at the very least ;) 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  3. Ohhh, this is awesome!! I love it, Kelly!
    And hey, take it from someone that thought they were OVER-hydrated and went to see an ER doctor...coffee does count towards your fluid/water intake, among lots of other things you drink AND eat! So I'm quite sure you're just fine not drinking much water. ;)
