It's day 5 of the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and although I didn't post a card for the hop yesterday, I did 2 on Sunday so I'm feeling pretty good. There is so much inspiration from the fabulous sponsors and participants it's mind boggling. at last count there were 726 entries and there's still 4 days to go. WOW! Today I'm sharing a card assembled digitally from the new I LUV Coffee set from Ike's Art. Not only does it have a 4 lovely cups in both jpg and png form (so you can print them on digitial backgrounds, if you like) but also 6 free digital papers designed by Jane Bradshaw especially for the set.
I used the paper with the cup outlines that could be printed and colored as is, like a coloring page, but instead, I cropped it in sections in my printing program, changed the color of each section and reassembled into a Springy coffee rainbow background for the glorious cup. I changed the black outline there, too to a light beigey brown and added a drop shadow and digital sentiment on a curve. After printing, I colored the coffee cup with Copic markers. I decided the sentiment got a bit lost so I printed it all again and cut out the sentiment following the curve and popped it with foam.
