***I EDITED MY POST : If you search for my Coffee Card it is the card number 2 on this post, please a bit scroll down :)***

Hallo my Blogland friend, we meet again at Wednesday and it means a new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More (ATSM) this week we have theme: Photo Inspiration

This photo Inspiration made me search on Google how to draw/blow drawing with Straw and I found this Video, the school children was learn about this :) not so easy but this is my first try...and also my First so many Splatter on my card :) I asked my Hubby...he said woooww so artistic and he loves this first Straw Technique card I made :)

One more Photo of my card, I used the Peerless Transparent watercolor and gave much water on it, then I can use this  Straw Technique.

I also made  this card for  Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and this time I like to use the stamp from Stamplorations.

I took my NEW Designer Paper (yeah I bought it and it was not so expensive and they have some flowers images on the set) and then stamped with Stamplorations Coffee Mug. I fussy cut it and adhere at the top of the Doily. 

I also embossed a white paper with embossing folder and added it to the pink cardstock. The Doily I have colored with sponging the pink distress ink on it.

The sentiment I stamped with Versamark Clear Ink and then gave pink Embossing Powder and heated it. (its not so easy to emboss on the Vellum, I have seen some are not covered with embossing powder :( )
