Smell the Coffee!!

In today's Way to Use It Challenge, Julia challenged us to get our our Copics (or other alcohol markers) and get coloring.  I chose this image from Impression Obsession (Smell the Coffee~ #CL156).

 WT179 smell the coffee

Yeah, you could say I have a thing for coffee images!!!...let alone a thing for coffee!  Most parts of this were colored with two markers.  And mostly I used Prismacolor Markers.  I am trying to teach myself to layer colors for shading and build up color, too.

The paper is some SUPER fun paper I picked up at a scrapbook store in Jenison, MI, while shopping with my friend, Shelly.  It is from Daisy Bucket and this line is called Playlist.  I had never heard of this company before, but I am super impressed with these papers.  They are double sided (though the reverse is usually a very subtle mono chromatic pattern) and textured.  PLUS with each line there is a page of 6 x 6 patterns.  As fellow card makers--you know how fun those little 6 x 6 papers are with their reduced size patterns!!!  FUN!!!!

That is it for today.... gotta go get my chocolate zucchini cake out of the oven...Yummo!

This is awesome Jules. Hey, the stamp set you used came from the very same store as your paper and I bought that set on the way home from the first time we met IP.
