With Enough Caffeine, I Could Rule the World
I was trying out the watercoloring technique with this coffee mug and really had no intention of actually making a card. But after I colored it, it actually wasn't hideous, so I decided to try it out. Magically, the Stampin' Up! designer paper matched the colors of the cup perfectly. It was by total accident. I love when that happens. I was going to mat the sentiment, but thought, "Hey, what if I just stamp it right on the paper?" And voila....a card that took me about 5 minutes to make after the image was colored. I think that may never happen again. It's one of the beautiful things about designer paper...cards look like they're so much more embellished than they really are.
I think I'm going to change this design up a little bit and make a name frame with it for my office....
