Welcome to Coffee Lovers 2017 Summer Blog Hop!
It's Dana here and I have a lovely step card to share with you, today. Let's get started!

Today's theme is Ariel's summer drink! Summer-> Mermaids -> Ariel? -> Red hair -> Berries? -> oh yes, she maybe loves berry frap! Lol.

[Supplies I used today]

* Sizzix Framelits Dies- Oh Happy Day Mini Step-Ups Card
* MFT Die-namics LLD Cool Cup
* MFT Die-namics Stitched Fancy Flourish : used as wave behind the cup
* MFT BB Mermazing stamp set
* MFT LLD Stay Cool stamp set : sentiment

I started by die cutting step card base and background papers using Sizzix Framelits Dies. I then die cut cold cup things and wave from watercolor paper and vellum paper using MFT Die-namics LLD Cool Cup and MFT Die-namics Stitched Fancy Flourish.

I watercolored body of the cup with distress inks using ink smooshing technique and splattered white acrylic paint using paint brush.

For sentiment, I white heat embossed it on the black card stock.

Next, I stamped mermaid and other images from MFT BB Mermazing stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black and several dye inks. I colored line images with copic markers (mermaid's hair, skin, top), Graph'it markers (mermaid's tail) and Shinhan touch brush markers (other images). Then, I fussy cut them out using scissors.

To finish, I arranged all elements and mounted them on the step card base and whipped cream using glue tape, acetate and foam adhesive.

Hope you enjoy this card. I'm so looking forward to seeing your summer coffee/ tea/ cocoa cards in this hop.
