Colorful Coffee Rings

I am still having fun playing with the Ken Oliver Color Bursts.  They sure make bright and beautiful backgrounds.

I created the background  using the Memory Box Texture Drip Rings stencil  along with the Ken Oliver  color burst in Orange and Lemon Yellow.    Some of my Ultramarine color bursts was already on the paper when I started and that is where the green color came from.   I turned the stencil over and spritzed it with water, then I added the color bursts and let it run on the stencil, then I turned the stencil back over and put it on  water color paper.   The color bursts sure make some amazing backgrounds.

I stamped coffee beans  on the  card , colored it with a marker and added the sentiment.  I wanted to add something a little extra without covering up my color bursts creation, so I added some
black rhinestones.

I used a yellow card base and added a layer of black before adding the finished water color paper to it.

The inside of the card says, "I forgot your birthday". 

This card is also for the Free 4 All challenge this week.

Thanks, for coming by today and taking a look at my card.  Have a great weekend.

  5. So good to see you used some bright colors with the coffee rings stencil - I always tend to just use "coffee" colors - your card is a nice day - brightener and I think the sentiment goes so well with the stamped beans - Kudos to you!!! and yes, I would like a cuppa - with you!!
