Today’s Inspiration Challenge (IC482) is a Pinterest Board full of Tea images. I didn’t have to go far to pick my inspiration…I chose THIS set. Tea sets usually make me think of lavenders & purples so it really appealed to me.
The tea set was stamped & colored very sparingly with Copics, then die cut & I used a pale lavender Copic around the edge. I used a scallop die twice to cut the lower edge of the larger white panel & also edge the top scallop w/ the same marker. On the top of this panel, I lined up the alphabet dies, die cut them, then trimmed the top down. I used the actual die cut letters, cut in half, for the top part & added a little aqua Copic to them. The tea border was stamped across the bottom of the die cut lavender panel & I added a die cut bow & tea rose on the side. The edge of the large lavender panel was also shaded a bit w/ the lavender marker.The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.
This card is also on the Serendipity Blog today because Serendipity is one of the sponsors of the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop organized by Amy Tsuruta from Tsuruta Designs. You might want to click the link to the Serendipity Blog and check it out. They’re giving away some really fabulous prizes!
