A Cup of Coffee three ways - Card Class Day 10

Wow, day 10 of the Clean and Simple Card Making 2 class has already come and gone!  This class went by fast, and I feel I've learned so much.  I really enjoy Online Card Classes so I can't wait to see what they come up with next. :)

For the final lesson homework we were asked to use a stamp in three different ways. I actually ended up making four cards.   I used the following set from Mark's Finest Papers:


I decided to use the stamp of stacked cups.  I've been wanting to used this one for a while, and I decided to finally sit down and figure out what to do.

I started with the following card:




I chose washi tape first and water coloured the image to coordinate.  I also came up with this card:




I like the layout of this one but I'm not as happy with my colouring.  I may try this again later with some different colours.  For the next card I thought it would be fun to just use one of the cups:



This was a really fun one and I love the colours. This card inspired me to do the next one:




 Of the bunch these last two are definitely my favourites.  Between them I can't decide which one I like more.  In addition, I've decided that sequins are my new favourite embellishment  (thanks Kirsten!). :)

I love how you have really explored this set. I like that little single cup and I have to admit the sequins do look great - might have to see if there are any in my stash.
