A Latte Birthday Wishes...

Hello, hello!  Happy middle of the week!  It is Lisa here with you today and I have a card that I've created based on the latest Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  Did you know that Mint Owl Studio is one of the Super Sponsors for this hop?!  LOVE it!  Also there is a special code you can use to get 20% off your total purchase right now, just enter COFFEE when checking out!  Now here is the watercolor postcard I've created with the Coffee Craze Stamp set...

When I think of seasonal projects I think of colors and while I don't have a huge selection of Magical Powders I did pull out my blue, orange and green colors that jumped out as fall to me.  The magical powders are fun to work with in various ways and I chose a very artsy and loose technique by simply sprinkling the powders in the general areas that I wanted them to be after my images were embossed. I then spritzed with water and let the "magic" happen!  I love the way you get a mix of colors from each powder by using this technique, but be aware that this technique is not something you have a lot of control over and sometimes things can get a bit messy.  I love the results and think its so fun to watch the colors change and swirl together.

Thanks so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
