Craftin Desert Divas June Release - CAS Card feat Coffee Wizards


Hello everyone! Today I am back with another fun card I created using the new Craftin Desert Divas Coffee Wizards stamp set  I really think this images are super fun, and the sentiments in this set make it even more awesome! How can anyone resist it?
For today's card I wanted to go for a more clear and simple look, so I tried to limit both the number of elements and of colors on the card.
For my background I took a sheet of Tim Holtz watercolor cardstock, and I did some ink smoothing with Distress Inks in Ground Espresso and Vintage Photo. I then trimmed about half an inch from the left side of my background panel, and I created a border using some brown cardstock and some aqua glitter paper.
I colored the image of the goat wizard using my Spectrum Noir markers, trying to stick as much as possible to aquas and neutrals. To tie the image in with the background even more, I coated all the elements that I had colored in aqua with my Spectrum Noir clear overlay pen. I cut the image using my Silhouette Portrait and I adhered it to my background using some foam squares for a bit of dimension. I created a banner for the super fun Espresso Patronum sentiment using the using one of the dies from the Craftin Desert Divas Flag Banner Dies. I then sponged the banner with Distress Inks in Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistachio to create a color that was a similar as possible to the glitter cardstock that I used for the background. I used some foam tape to support the center of the banner, and I glued it to my card base. 
And that's it for today's card! Quite quick to put together, but I think the glitter paper and the color combination make it really stand out! And this stamp set it is really really awesome! I love it! If you want to check out one more project I made with images from the set, you can visit this post
With this card I would also like to participate in the Coffee Lovers Summer Blog Hop. In case you didn't know, Craftin Desert Divas is a sponsor for the blog hop, and they are offering a free digital stamp for the whole duration of the hop.
