Let's meet over coffee....

Today, I want to share a card I made for the coffeelovingcardmakers blog hop.  I tried a new technique that I learned this past weekend at our 1st Fun Stampers Journey Convention.
It is hard to see from the picture, but the coffee cup has some shimmer to it and I did that by using the cool pool silk over the stamp.
First, I inked up my stamp with cool pool ink.  Next I brushed on the cool pool silk.  Then I stamped the image on a piece of Buttercream Cardstock.  I then re inked the stamp with Cool Pool ink and stamped it again on a new piece of  buttercream cardstock.  The effect is a more shimmery coffee cup.
Now it is your turn to try this technique.  Enjoy!
