Coffee Lovers Summer Blog Hop! Card #1

I'm so excited to be participating in the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!   It's always such a fun inspiring event and there are SO MANY prizes to be won!! whoo hoo!!  
Thank you Amy, and the rest of the team that work so hard to organize this!
I made a clean and simple card today with a water color wash background on Arches watercolor paper.  I stamped the park scape in Archival Jet Black Ink, dried it with my heat tool, brushed water over the area I wanted to watercolor and then brushed on the watercolor paints.  I dried it again with my heat tool and then stamped the sentiment on.
The sentiment is from an older Papertrey Ink set - Warm Happiness and the Parkscape is a red rubber stamp from Stampendous.

Are you participating in the blog hop too? It runs from  Friday, June 23 - Friday, June 30.   
You'll find the link up and list of all the prizes to be won here.

I'm also linking my card to:


Stamps:  Parkscape - Stampendous, Warm Happiness - PTI
Paper:  Arches Watercolor paper, white - PTI
Ink:  Archival Jet Black, True Black and Cocoa Bean - PTI
Accessories:  watercolor paints, paint brush, water.
