Hello everyone, hope you've been having a good weekend. It's been cold here but it is at least sunny! Before I tell you about the card I have here to show you, I'd just like to say a quick hello to some lovely new followers Sharon, Suzanne, Sue and Marianne. It's lovely to see you all.
I've had a very busy weekend catching up on all sorts of things I should have done but didn't after a nightmare couple of weeks of work so my entry for this challenge is only just finished in time. It's for Gingersnap Creations GC85 Chestnut Theme Challenge - Hot Beverages and what else could I choose but my favourite tipple, tea.
I've made a mixed media collage style card to celebrate my love of this particular beverage which was inspired by the gorgeous Willow pattern china often used in England to serve the tea.
I chose a favourite colour combination of beige and sepia to go with the blue shades. The vintage style background paper is from Polka Doodles All Around & Everywhere CD. I stamped a strip of blue card with the teapot and cup and saucer from a See Ds vintage cling set with Majestic Blue VersaFine ink.
I made a cup shaped template and cut out a cup from white card which I stamped with part of the design from Magenta's CSET15 Musical in the same blue ink. I inked a little round the edges with brown ink.
The image of the woman is from Art Freebies blog run by June and I cut her out then inked the edges with brown. I found a vintage clock face on the internet too and some clock hands which I altered by embossing with Ranger Ancient Gold.
The finishing touch is the text which I stamped with Hero Arts letters and Vintage Sepia VersaFine ink on a scrap of the background paper.
I'm also entering the card into Stamptacular Sunday's new challenge 96 - Whateva
Thanks for looking,
I'm now off to prepare our Sunday tea, a family tradition not to be missed with scones, muffins, crumpets, cake and so on.
