A Birthday Brew

Hello crafty friends!
Today I am playing along with the Inky Paws Challenge over at Newton's Nook Designs!

They have this super fun sketch for you this month!
Here is my take...;-)

Isn't this adorable!? (I know, I'm saying it myself...lol)

Newton Loves Coffee | 4x6 Photopolymer Stamp Set | Newton's Nook Designs

The Newton Loves Coffee set was just perfect for this sketch!
I love when stamps do the job for me...;-)
See that adorable image where Newton is at the table? That one gave me the idea for my card today!

I stamped the image on 3" x 4-1/4" watercolor paper then started to color the table with a flat paintbrush. I used Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip, Sahara Sand, and a few streaks of Bermuda Bay. I only used very little of water to create "wood grains".
Her coffee mug was colored with Bermuda Bay and Encore Gold Reinkers. Inside the mug is of course some coffee, which was colored with Early Espresso, then some glossy accent and heart shaped steam were added. 

This stamp set also comes with cute sentiments to go with the cute images. Since tags remind me of gifts, this one was it ;-) It was heat embossed with Early Espresso along with those little coffee beans, which are just adorable, right!? I used the same coloring technique  on the table to add blue on the tag. 

People enjoy reading at coffee shops, right? So I thought this patterned paper fit well ;-) 
I just love when everything on your card goes so well together like milk and cookies!
