Stay for Tea, a one-layer card

  Here, I have yet another tea cup card! I’m loving playing with this Stampin’ Up tea cup stamp from the Tea Shoppe stamp set. I think that the set has been retired?

Inspired by Leigh’s sketch for CAS(E) this Sketch #110, I decided to try a one-layer, love (Less is More’s Week 211), monochromatic (CASology’s #134) version of this tea cup.

I stamped the “steam” in “Encore” silver metallic ink with a PTI stamp from the Silent Night stamp set. It’s in PTI’s “Vault” now.

IMG_0964I applied Hero Arts blue ink to the entire cup and then used cotton swabs to remove the ink from the flowers and leaves. Then I used my Stampin’ Up markers to apply a variety of blues to the flowers, stems, leaves and the ribbon.

Please excuse the sub par photos. I’m still figuring out the software on my new computer. Iphoto is not cutting it and it does not play well with Adobe Photoshop Elements! Maybe I’ll try to take some more photos  of this card tomorrow.

Would you like to see some other Large Tea Cup cards that I have made recently?

Look here. And Here.

Thanks for stopping by!
