You're Tea-riffic

Hiya!!

I'm playing along with Addicted to CAS today and the challenge is a sketch!! I am also playing along with Addicted to Stamps - Make Your Mark Challenge. I was flipping through my stamps and i decided to play with new Tea Par-tea set from The Alley Way Stamps.

I started by stamping the tea pot and tea cup on watercolor paper. I used my distress markers and water to color the images by just drawing a light line around the inner edges, then adding water and working the ink out toward the middle of the image. To make areas darker, i would add more marker and just a bit of water. Once everything was colored and dry i cut them out.

Next i found some green polka-dot pattern paper that i thought went well with the tea pot. I trimmed it down and following the sketch added some twine and tied it in a bow. (you can see that i moved the elements of the sketch down, rather then it being in the middle). Then i adhered the panel to a white card base.

I added the tea pot and cup to my card with foam tape. For the sentiment i first die cut a banner and then stamped 'You're Tea-riffic' on it. I also added it to my card base with foam tape.
