In a huge coffee mood...

...and my first post is for two challenges.

The base car is textured cream card stock with a layer of brown textured card stock.
The pumpkin piece was made with water color paper and MFT "spooky sweets" pumpkin using Distress Oxide walnut stain and spiced marmalade.
After stamping the pumpkin piece I spritzed it with water and blotted it off with a paper towel.
Once it was thoroughly dry I taped it to the card front and added the circles I die cut from another piece of brown textured card stock.
On another piece of water color paper I stamped the MFT barista and colored her with Staedtler water color pencils and floated the color with water and a water color brush.
The verse from the same MFT barista set was stamped to a strip of water color paper using StazOn timber brown ink, then I smeared (technical term) Distress Oxide spiced marmalade and repeated the spritz and blot technique.
Once the strip was dry I corner rounded one end and applied it to the card with glue.
The barista I stamped is now dry enough that I can trim her out with a craft knife on a self healing mat.
She was then applied to the card with glue dots.
