Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Friday, June 5, 2015

Hello Friends! The Summer Edition of the Coffee Lover's Blog Hop is happening from today until June 12th, and while I don't have any coffee or tea Paper Sweeties stamps yet, I was able to improvise so that I could participate in the blog hop.

I used a flower pot from the Garden Time stamp set to create a cute glass of sweet iced tea. I used Summer Sky ink to stamp the image then colored the tea with Copics. To get a few ice cubes in the glass, I stamped them with a chisel tipped Brushstix and white pigment ink. A good coating of UTEE melted on the tea glass gives it a nice glassy finish. The "Sweet" sentiment is from the Happy Sweet Cuts die set. I cut several layers and glued them together for stability. All my supplies are listed below.
