ATC - Sip Yawn Repeat

Hi, everyone! As promised, I'm back with another coffee-themed project for the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

I made another ATC, or artist trading card, measuring 2.5" x 3.5". ATCs are great to include in happy mail, and I also enjoy putting together nine of them to make a pocket letter. If all goes well, then I should be able to share a completed coffee-themed pocket letter before the end of the hop! If you're curious about ATCs, you can read more about them here.

The kitty die is from Frantic Stamper, and the pierced frame was made from Memory Box Pinpoint Rectangle Layers. The sentiment stamp is from Newton's Nook.  I created the watercolour background with the ink smooshing technique using Distress Inks (Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry). I also used a coffee cup sticker, butterfly punch, gem, and a scrap of patterned paper from my stash.

I would also like to support the following challenges:
ATC Around the World AG 3/3
Happy Little Stampers Watercolour Challenge Optional CAS
Stamped Blessings heARTful stamping AG plus Stamp 2/2
SUYP Cats Only Furrything Goes UE
The Crafter's Cafe All Creatures Great and Small 2/3 C10

Thank you for looking at my ATC! Wishing you a joyful day!

I love the great watercolour background you've created with the "smooshing technique". It really sets off that coffee cup and adorable kitten beautifully. Thanks so much for playing along with our HLS May Watercolour challenge.
