When I saw this Minty Coffee stamp, I had a total light-bulb moment. The Martha in me came alive and I got busy! Here's what I made:
I'm really proud of myself! I created this little gift jar full of peppermint white chocolate dipped spoons, which will be a perfect gift for a coffee loving friend. These treats are awesome...just unwrap and stir your coffee with it to make a sweet and minty drink. They were also super easy to make. After a little bit of research, I used these instructions. It literally took me 15 minutes, and while the spoons were cooling, I decorated the jar.
I stamped the Minty Coffee image in Brilliance Graphite Black on Fabriano Hot Press watercolor paper. Then I watercolored it with my Peerless watercolors...I love them!! After I cut the image out with my Oval Nestabilities, I added a scalloped layer and finally some shimmer with the Pearlescent Watercolors. These are soooo yummalish! Here's a detail shot (click on the picture for a larger view).
