Thanks a Latte Card (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)

Hi everyone! :o)

Today is my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made this Thanks a Latte Card:o)

To make this card I was inspired with a monochromatic color scheme I used on my own card that I made last year (here). I really really like it. :o)

For this card I used stamps from two ADORABLE Jane's Doodles stamp sets'Coffee Time' and 'Outdoors'.

How I made this card...

I stamped a moose on a watercolor paper, masked his "arm" and stamped a coffee cup that he holds. I drew lines on the cup with a black fine liner. I colored the image in watercolor technique using  only one color, a Distress Ink Ground Espresso.

After drying, I fussy cut the moose and traced edges with a black marker. Then I stamped another moose on a white cardstock paper, colored him in black, fussy cut him, leaving thin white border around him, and glued watercolored moose over him. I did this because the watercolor paper I use is very thin and I needed a bit thicker image. As a finishing touch, I drew white details on reindeer's scarf using a white pigment ink and black fine liner. :o)

Then I worked on a background. I randomly stamped coffee cups and pots on a Kraft cardstock paper panel using a Distress Ink Picket Fence. At first the color was so pale, barely visible, but after drying it got stronger, whiter.

At this point my background looked a bit boring, so I colored coffee cups and pots with a white colored pencils.

Next up was a sentiment. I heat embossed the sentiment in white on a Kraft cardstock paper stripe. I trimmed the stripe to a desirable size and all parts for my card were ready to assemble.

I glued the panel on a white top folded card base, glued 3-D foams on the sentiment stripe and the moose and glued them on the card. As a finishing touch, I embellished the card with brown enamel dots. :o)
