You Mocha Me Crazy

Hello crafty friends, I have a card to share with you today!
I'm interrupting this winter holiday cardmaking time of year to bring
you a card with pink and hearts for a day!
I'm up in the KaDoodle Bug Facebook group today and for my design
team project I used an adorable file called
Valentine Frappuccino Cutie!
I saw an awesome video on the Unity Facebook page and fell in love
with the technique they showed.  They made their own background for a donut 
card and I knew I had to try it out!
Here is the card I made with the cute Frappuccino image
and the handmade background.

I started with a piece of Bristol Smooth Cardstock and die cut a panel
I then stamped a scribbled heart image in Versamark Ink from a Maymay Made It 
stamp set called "Love Is".

I heat embossed the hearts with WOW gold embossing powder.
The next step was to mask off the outer edge of the card with purple tape and 
ink the panel with Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Ink.

After I was done sponging I removed the tape to reveal a crisp white border.
The gold hearts had white areas in between the embossing so 
I colored them in with my Copic marker RV21 for a little
added color. Next came the fun part, splattering the background
with 2 different color oxide inks.

I smooshed the colors on to my Tim Holtz media mat
and sprayed them with water.  I put my paintbrush into the colors
and tapped them onto my background.  I just love the effect I get from
splattering paint randomly on my cards!

The only thing left to do was to pop my cutie Frappuccino up on 
some foam tape and add my sentiment!

I am in love with this background and I think I will be making a lot more
of them!  There are so many colors, stamps and themes it could be used for.

I'm so glad you stopped by today, I hope you like my card and technique!
Have a great day, I already am!
