Kathy Schweinfurth – YOU ARE HERE


My card features two fabulous goodies from Joy Clair!  The Coffee To Go background stamp is amazing.  I used a watercolor technique, using masking fluid on the cups to create the background.  Love getting inky!  The large cup is from a Joy Clair coffee stamp set favorite:  Coffee Lovers that I paper pieced and then stamped the sentiment.  THANKS a Latte, Joy Clair, for the collaboration and hop!

Next up is the super talented Katie Brooks!
