Mug hugs

I could not make up my mind on the colour for my mug, so I did a bunch of colours! 

I first stamped and heat embossed the mug using white embossing powder, then die cut the piece with the wonky dies. I then proceeded with the water colouring using Tim Holtz Distress Inks adding layers of colour until I was happy. Once dry I splattered with more inks and an acrylic black ink, then attached to my aqua base. For my sentiment, I die cut the hugs using white fun foam, then coloured only the top with a glitter marker, leaving the sides white. It has the appearance that it is floating, which I like. And, being me, I added a few metallic sequins to finish. 

Thanks for dropping by today ....

OMG, Kia..I LOVE your heat embossed coffee cup with your bright colors of layered Distress Inks:-) Your colored and black splatters add so much texture. What great idea to die cut your hug with fun foam and then color too. Such a happy fun card my friend. TFS Hugs!
