Have an Esspresso-ly Great Day!

Hey Peeps! Today I have another card made with one of Whimsy's new clear sets from the April release. The set is called Espresso-ly Great. Perfect set for me as I am a huge coffee lover and it is so versatile you can make cards for anyone including masculine cards.

The background was made using the coffee beans image from the set. First I stamped the beans several times with Versamark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I then sponged the background very ligtly with Distress tea dye ink. I actually did not use a sponge I used one of my Clarity brushes for that. It gives a softer effect. Then I stamped the beans with Distress tea dye ink between the white images. 
The cup image was stamped and fuzzy cut. I colored with Copics. I've added clear glaze to the coffee in the cup. The brown frame was die cut with the smaller rectangle from the ShakerMaker Rectangle die set. The sentimen is included with the clear set.
