Express-ing My Gratitude--Coffee Lovers Blog Hop #11

Here's my final card for the Coffee Lover's Blog Hop.  It has been such a fun week making coffee--themed cards.  For this card, I tried my hands at water coloring and the bokeh effect.  I didn't do so well with the bokeh.  My white pigment ink needs to be replaced by a better product.  (Darn, I'll have to go shopping!)  I used a new coffee stamp set from My Favorite Things--Perk Up and a really old stamp set from Fiskars.  I learned a lot from this early attempt.  Can't wait to try again when my new ink arrives!  ~Debbie

    Love your fab background! Is that embossing over embossing? Cool!
