I chose to work with the A La Mode You're My Cup of Tea stamp set and some lovely patterned papers from the Unforgettable collection from My Mind's Eye.
I began with a Whip Cream cardstock base, and stamped the image on X-Press It Blending Card. I colored her with Copic markers, and paper-pieced the tea cup. I even added a fun flower accent to the tea tag by cutting it out of the patterned paper. I machine-stitched several of the layers together with ivory button thread. The sentiment was stamped in Gumdrop Green on a Circles STAX 2 Die-namics die, which was then layered onto an open scallop Mini Doily Circle Die-namics die.
A bit of Gumdrop Green grosgrain ribbon and a few light green pearls finish off the details.
Now, I wonder how many of you noticed my "boo boo". Yup, I forgot to put some tea in that cup! I consider myself to be quite detail-oriented; so this cracks me up. I want you to know that I did go back and add some "tea" with a couple of Copic markers (E33/E37)...all better. I also want you to know that I am too lazy to re-take the photo; so you'll just have to imagine it there. *grin*
Inside my card I added a couple of strips of patterned paper, and another of the fun sentiments in the set stamped in Gumdrop Green ink.
