CAS(E) this Sketch #255

Time for another CAS(E) this sketch card challenge #255.  For some reason I've been wanting to make a coffee themed card for a while so I thought this would be the perfect card to add in a cute little coffee cup.  When I want cute I reach for my Lawn Fawn stamps and dies.  Today I pulled out my Love You a Latte stamps and dies.  Cute coffee images and with sweet sentiments in a fun scripty font.  I saw a fun technique on YouTube yesterday to make a neat background from distress inks and acetate.  I smooshed (technical term)🤣 some walnut stain distress ink on to a piece of acetate and then sprayed it with water.  When the ink was running I smooshed the acetate onto my cardstock.  It gives a water color like background without the paintbrush.  I stamped some coffee beans and coffee mug stains on it for more interest.  I watercolored the cute little coffee cup with a water color pencil then stamped a heart on it and popped it up on a brown banner.  
The sentiment was stamped, trimmed and the edges were inked. 
I love how this card came together so quickly, having a sketch really helps!

Have a great day and happy stamping everyone!
