It's the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! I love playing along and am so happy I found some time to make a new project! *update* I am honoured to be chosen as a Designer Top Pick for this card! Thanks, Mary :)

I first took out the Frosty Flakes stencil from The Greetery to use with Uncharted Mariner distress oxide. I ink blended and then took a wet paintbrush to the ink. After it dried, I spritzed it with water, let it dry and then spritzed it again. Finally, I went in with a wet paintbrush again to blend out some of the water splotches.

I wanted to use the Cozy Cup set from The Greetery and thought it would look amazing in Jade ink from Pigment Craft Co.! I used Sage ink for the shadow and then Vintage Photo + Ground Espresso for the coffee. Next, I chose a coordinating sentiment from the set. 

I was searching for some winter sprigs to add to my design and pulled out the Winter Sketches set. At first, I thought I would just use the small pine sprig with the pinecone, but then liked how the larger bough fit into the scene as well.
