Paper craft project nos. 327 and 328: Perk Up! Latte Love one layer cards

Yay, two more cards done -- progress! :o) These cards are quickie one layer cards using a couple of new coffee-themed stencils from ARTplorations and STAMPlorations stamps. 

One Layer Card #1: PERK UP!
I made this by dabbing Distress paint (barn door) over the coffee cup stencil, stamping the sentiment, and using Japanese watercolor brush pens for adding some spatters and that artsy frame.

Linking up my Perk Up! one layer card to these fun challenges:

One Layer Card #2: LATTE LOVE
I never waste paint if I can help it! And that's what I did on this card. I flipped over the stencil I used for card #1 and brayered over it to transfer the paint onto my card base. Really loved the painterly effect! I sponged light brown ink through the latte stencil, stamped the sentiment in black, and all done :o)
