Need to Venti?

Hello and welcome to Studio 5380.

I hope your week has been going well for you.
So far, so good around here! It's been a bit busy, but I made some "me time" today and played in my Studio most of the day (♥).  While checking out some of my favorite blogs, I noticed a fun challenge going on over at the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge Blog. This is my favorite type of challenge:
ANYTHING GOES!  So, I had to play along....

So, I've really been wanting to try my hand at using watercolors somewhere on my card (late to the party, I know).  I finally got brave enough to give it a try and I am loving the way it turned out!

After cutting out my white mat, I dabbed a bit of clear water across the bottom portion and added my watercolors. I used the cheap-o watercolor set from Michael's, but it has such pretty colors.

I added a few splatters of watercolor and stamped on the "hello" using the oh-so cute Paper Smooches stamp set Bold Buzzwords.  I love the fonts on this fun set.

The great coffee cup is from the Hot Concoctions stamp set. I colored this little cutie with my Copic Markers and did a bit of fussy-cutting.  For a final touch, I added some Frosted Lace Stickles to the whipped cream to remind me of my favorite (at this time) Starbuck's Concoction - a Salted Caramel Latte....yum.

To finish up, I added a heart stamped heart and some shiny sequins.
Now, I'm off to link this up over at the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge Blog - wish me luck!

Thanks for stopping by - see ya soon.....
