Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Here is my first project for the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  

The DT from the Not2Shabby Shop are playing along and Not2Shabby Shop is also participating as a super sponsor.  

The hop runs from December 9th to 16th and you can participate by creating a project with a winter theme using coffee, tea or hot cocoa.  There are many prizes to be won including a $25 gift certificate to the not2Shabby shop.  And to make it easier for you to find all the coffee related stamps Jamie has created a section in the shop - just click here.  
Even more exciting news there is a special coupon code during the hop for 15% off your purchase just use the code COFFEE.

Now to get on with my project.

I had to make a special card for my boss from the whole team and since our gift was coffee themed then this was the perfect opportunity to use some of my coffee stamps.  I decided to use the new Coffee Hedgehog from Gerda Steiner Designs and paired with it the Hedgehog with Sign.  These two are so cute.  My design was to stack them like a Christmas tree and use their signs to send our message.


I have to say that they worked out perfectly and the only masking I needed to do was for the coffee cup on the top hedgehog.


To colour my image I used Derwent Inktense pencils which I received as a birthday present this year, I am still new to them and working out how they work and what I can do with them but I have to say I am very happy with them.  The colours and very bright and Intense (hence the name).  


If you would like to see my process video for colouring these super cuties then please check out my YouTube channel here.
