Flybaby February Food Blog Challenge

Hello! So it's the end of the month and time again for our Flybaby group challenge to actually blog something! This month the theme is food-related cards. I have a few, all from today of course. This is a fast post because it's late and my husband is dying to watch the new Psych.

First up is a watercolor card. I made the image during the PTI challenges but never got to make a card. I inked the stamps with dye ink then spritzed with water from a Ranger mini mister. I used Prang watercolors that must be at least 18 years old and a waterbrush. I find it odd that the paint I had in high school is still around, but not the brushes? What's up with that? Anyway. The ribbon is a scrap.

I had to make a card for my one true food love, coffee. The sentiment is from Crafty Secrets, the coffee rings from Cocoa Daisy, and the mug from a Stampendous set. 

Last, I made a few quick Project Life cards. Nothing really to explain here. Can't wait to use the Mug one in my album!

Thanks for looking!

  1. Great cards, Paula! I need to try the watercolor technique!

  2. Cute cards...and I'm not surprised about coffee being your food choice! Homegrown strawberries are my favorite fruit, once this snow melts we hope for a huge patch!

  4. Great cards. I just saw another post that used coffee rings. What we stampers don't think of, eh? I always love the fun simplicity of your cards Paula. Thanks for joining in.

  5. Yay! You used your rings! The mug shots is my favorite. Lol! Pretty berries! Glad you got to watercolor!
