Carlene's Tea

I am always torn between coloring images ahead of time and having them ready to add to a card, or waiting to choose a color scheme to match a card base or background paper. What do you do? Thoughts?

   Kind & Caring Thoughts

   Powder Pink A-2
   Afternoon Tea DSP 5 x 3-3/4
   Just Add Color DSP 4 x 2-3/4
   Whisper White 5-1/4 x 4 (Inside)

   Tuxedo Black Memento

   Various - Personal Choice


   Stampin' Up! Tea Stain
   Distressing Tool

This teapot and cup are found on a 12 x 12 sheet of Stampin' Up! black and white DSP. There is a row of them. I cut out a set and colored the images using various markers.

Next, I distressed the edges and splattered a tea stain to age the paper a bit.

I then matted it with a panel of DSP and adhered it to my card base.

Lastly, I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the card.

  1. Wonderful tea pot and I love the splatters on the base of the image too. It adds interest and is easily done but really works so well.

    1. Thank you, Lisa. I needed that pat on the back. Sometimes, I think I am the only one who likes my cards. Your comments not only assure me of continuing to share, but lift me up tremendously. Thank you so much for your kindness.
