Coffee lovers summer blog hop


Hello.
This is my first coffee lovers blog hop how exciting :)
I'm looking forward to hopping and seeing what everyone has made.


I went with something different rather than a card.
I used an embroidery hoop to make this.
I only have the one coffee type set and that is the awesome lawn fawn set "Love you a latte".
My first attempt failed i just heat embossed the images in neon colours and it looked truly awful.
 I am so glad i started over because I am much happier with this.


I stamped the images and coloured with derwent coloursoft pencils.
Once everything was coloured i die cut the "a latte". 
Does that make sense? Smile a latte? 
I then added another layer under the letters and placed them on top so that they are raised.
The letters were then covered in some clear wink of stella and a thick layer of glossy accents.


I finished with some clear sequins from pretty pink posh.
I love the bright sunny colours and cant wait to find somewhere to hang it.
Thanks for looking.
