Coffee gives me wings to fly

Once again I'm a day late (or 3) and a dollar shy.  I finished my coffee cards for the Fall Coffee Lover's Blog Hop too late to join in the fun. Hiss, boo on me.

My first card was water colored with my Gansai Tambi watercolors, and a cheapo set from Michaels. The dragonfly is painted with the beautiful iridescent colors from the cheapo set, and the coffee cup is painted from the Gansai Tambi.

Here's a closeup of the iridescent dragonfly:

After I saw this closeup I went back in with a multliner and drew the outlines again where I had over-painted.  The glitter spots were made with some liquid glitter glue that was a gift last Christmas from a coworker. Somehow I expected the glue to dry in dimensional dots, but no, they went flat on me. Oh well. It's interesting to be able to work with glitter again. I couldn't do that when making cards for Operation Write Home.

The stamps are from the Alley Way Stamps, Fly By and Breakfast Club.
