Tea for One

After sipping tea all day, I was inspired to use these wonderful images from Gina K.’s Lovely Shelf stamp set for my SCS Sketch Challenge (SC258) card. I used the colors chosen by Dawn McVey in her latest Raspberry Suite Color Challenge (#20).

Once I decided to use the Top Note die for my layout, I looked for aqua-colored ribbon and matching patterned paper. The dots in the Autumn Meadows DSP made me want to use the Texturz plate on the Kraft card base. I sponged Rich Cocoa ink around the edge of the card and Top Note die-cut. The images were colored with Copic markers and the tea cup was popped up with a dimensional.

See more wonderful projects with images from Gina K. Designs’ latest release in the December Customer Blog Hop!

    This is such a great take on the sketch. Love the coloring of the teapot & cup. I think you have those Copics working magic.

    Thanks for bringing the correct name of the stamp set to my attention! I made the correction on my blog.
