Sip and Share...Hipster Vibe

Good morning coffee-loving friends!  It's another Sip-And-Share Sunday at the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog and I'm back to share another card and sketch with you!  I'm really diggin' the set I used this week and I hope you enjoy it too!  

I'm in love with the images in the Hipster at Heart set from Hero Arts!  When I first saw this set, I knew I had to have it in my collection!  I love the coffee cup and the beans, but I REALLY love the hipster vibe the whole set provides.  I'm not a hipster by any way shape or form but I DO love the hipster, trendy and laid back!  

So let's take a look at the card I created using this fun set:  
So I thought this set was the perfect set to create a fun collage!  Just pile all those awesome images onto a card!  I couldn't just pick a few, so almost every single image is on the front!  LOL.  

To create the background, I applied a few swipes of PanPastels then brushed some Windsor and Newton Masking Fluid over the top. After the masking fluid dried, I added some more PanPastels over that to create more dimension and depth of color. I peeled the masking fluid off and rubbed the Pan Pastels with a cloth to allow for a softer bridge between the color and masked layer. To finish off the background, I splattered some Fun Stampers Journey Silver Silk and Bronze Silk.  
I stamped each image onto white cardstock using Black Onyx Versafine Ink then colored them up a little with some PanPastels. After coloring the images, I applied a bit of Journey Glaze to the Mason Jar glass, the gems and the camera lens.  
Yummy! Finally, I arranged the images into a collage "line" along the edge of the background paper then added a piece of polka-dot paper from my stash. To finish off the collage, I added some jute and a few scraps of graph paper. Adding a bit of gold washi (From Target) tape to the panel gave it some pop it was missing and helped to finish off the piece.  

I mounted this collage panel onto white cardstock then attached it to a gray card base. Once the card was finished and photographed, I set off to create the sketch.  
So, what do you think? Are you ready to give the sketch a try? Why not give it a go?! Please join the fun and create a card using this week's sketch.
