Julie Warner –
For my card, I die cut the teapot & teacup in white, then lightly embossed them only on lt yellow card stock. I used yellow & yellow/orange Copic markers to add some additional color to the embossed yellow roses, then trimmed to fit under the white die cut versions. I came across a previously die cut white oval frame & used the same Copics to add color to match. I did the same with the larger, yellow/orange mat. The printed paper was added underneath for contrast. On the larger piece of designer paper, I stamped the tea border with the distress ink and added some of the yellow/orange color to it as well. The layout is a bit non-standard but I had some pieces of designer paper left from another project and didn’t want them to go to waste. One word of the tea border was stamped on white and I used a multi tag punch to punch out the one little “tea bag” tag to add to the cup. I added a printed navy Candi dot in the upper left for balance.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Please stop by and visit all of the blogs so you’ll be sure to be in the drawing!
