I chose to create 2 cards using the both the Zoe and the Nevermore papers.

On this first card I used a piece of Nevermore as a background (the top & bottom grey paper), and Zoe is the middle paper.  I stamped the coffee mug and sentiment from the Treats of Friendship C1616 stamp set.  I used the watercolor paints to color in the coffee mug image.  I finished the card off using Silver Foil tape and the Fundamental Assortment Peacock.

TIP:  When using watercolor paints on an image, stamp the image using a pigment ink instead of the dye based ink.  Pigment ink is permanent and takes slightly longer to dry but won’t smudge or run when you apply water.
