Fluffy Coffee Besties DT card

Hello everyone!

I would like to welcome my new follower Cvanoorschot, unfortunately I can’t give a blog link. Please leave me a comment so I can find you, thank you so much for joining me!

Today I made my DT card with a My Besties Img018 Fluffy Cafe  from Sherri Baldy.

We have a challenge at the Scrapbook Stamp Society Challenge Blog that runs for the second week and is “Anything goes option Lace and/or ribbon”.
Come join and play with us as we have some great prizes for the winners!

I printed my image on watercolor paper and colored it with my inktense pencils.
I would like to talk about using watercolors on printed images. I have noticed that if I let my images “dry” after printing them for 24 hours they don’t bleed when I use watercolors. I try not to use to much water, I personally use a waterbrush so I can control the amount of water. I hope that is a helpful tip.
I used a paper doily as a stencil and sponged distress ink on my card base so I have the illusion of lace on my card.
I fussy cut my image and adhered it with foam tape on my card.
I used two ribbons and some pearls scattered around to finish off my card.

So there is my card for today.

I really enjoyed making it and I hope you like it!
Thank you for visiting,
xoxo Olga

  1. Olga! I really love this!! Thank you for participating in our March My Besties 3D challenge! Our New April challenge has just begun and we can't wait to see what you will create next!


  2. I just got some Inktense pencils so was delighted to take a peek at your fab colouring, and your card design is lovely 🙂
    Thanks for sharing with us at In The Pink!

  3. Such an adorable card! I love your colouring! I am jealous that you are able to watercolour on your printed images. I have let mine dry for over a week, also tried a heat tool, still the ink runs. You are lucky! Mine is Dell/Lexmark inkjet – what brand to you have? Also I love how you ink-blended with the doily – brilliant idea! I must try this! Gorgeous pearls too!


  4. What a cheeky & happy image – love the hot colors of this babe! Especially her hair treatment. Wish my printers would handle w/color paper! Love the delicate doily (thought it was a 'for real one' until I read the post!) and the feminine embellies you've added to compliment this lady. Well done! TFS & Hugs


  5. A sweet card love how you have coloured through the doily at the back of your image. Thank you for sharing it with us over at My Bestie 3D and More Challenge. Good luck with your entry. Hugs Andrea DT


Thank you so much for your comment! It always makes me so happy when I read them! xoxo Olga
