Week #102-High Tea

Week #102 - High Tea
at The Shabby Tea Room.

The Shabby Tea Room's challenge this week is one I fell in love with the moment I saw the picture.  I love anything having to do with tea, and if it has a rose in it, well, count me in.

I made this card using background paper from Melissa Frances, stamp and die set for the tea cup and roses are from Heartfelt Creations.  The phrase stamp and die set is from Papertrey Ink.  I used some hand dyed seam binding for the bow and an Epiphany epoxy dot in the middle of the bow.
I tried a new technique with this card that I have been wanting to try for a while.  I used chalk on the inside of the card with copics marker accents on the leaves and outside.  I used my Glossy accents for the liquid in the cup and then the P.K. Glitz EP lite as accents for the roses and leaves.

As an aside, I just got back from the Scrapbook Expo show in Anaheim this weekend.  Every time I go to a show I always come back with so much information that it is hard to remember everything I learned.  So this time I decided that I would make a card a day every day this week just so I can put the techniques to use.  So keep checking back, and hopefully, I can show you some exciting stuff I learned.

Thanks for stopping by and look forward to seeing you next time!
