For my project today I wanted something that looked really sweet and innocent but had some Sass to it :) I used the absolutely adorable Jasmin - Warm Cuppa from Crafty Sentiments Designs for my main image. I really love this one - it is one of my favorite images :)

My sentiment is computer generated and I had actually seen this saying on a coffee mug on pinterest and thought it was funny ... I actually want to get one for myself for a work mug - LOL! While I was making this card I had had the pleasure of listening to my children fight and argue like 3 year olds over doing the dishes together, and I think I was ready for my own mug to contain some vodka by the time I was done!!! LOL!

I really LOVE how this turned out and the color scheme together. The papers I used are from the Blissful Blizzard Paper Collection from Fancy Pants Designs, so I colored my image in a similar scheme to the papers I was going to use. I usually just color my image how I want first and then try and find papers I like that match so I think this worked out a little better for me :)

I colored my image with copic markers and this was my first time trying a darker skin tone so I am really happy how it turned out. When I first started coloring the skin I wasn't sure if I would like it or not, but once it dried, I loved it!

Here is a closer look at my image...

I remembered to write the marker colors that I used down this time :)

Skin - E00, E11, E13, E21, R20
Hair/coffee - E47, E49, E57
Greys - W0, W3, W5
Blues/Aqua - B00, BG000
Mug - R56, R59
Eyes - G94, G99
Steam for the mug I just used a white gel pen

Here is a list of everything I used on my card:
Martha Stewart Branch Punch & Scallop Border Punch
Prima Flowers (coming soon!)
Spellbinders classic circles

For my sketch layout, I chose a card sketch that I have had tucked away in my card sketches folder on pinterest that was designed by Creawitch. 

I hope you enjoyed my project today and it gave you a chuckle :) Now be sure to hop along with us and if you are a regular hopper you will notice that our line up has grown AND you will see some new faces as this is our first Sunday Hop with our new Design Team Members!!
