Stacked Teacups

Today I have another tea themed card for you destined for another tea friend.  There are quite a few tea lady birthdays this month.

    For this one I used a stamp that I have had for years but that hasn't seen ink until this card.  I used some lovely Martha Stewart papers that I purchased on clearance. (Remember my motto "Never pay full price.")

    I wanted a card that had a vintage feel but that had lots of feminine detail.  I think the pearls, lace edging and borders and roses really do that.  I am also in love with this new to me Spellbinders ornate rectangles die set and you are probably going to see it showing up in a number of my cards.

   To color the cups I used my favorite gamsol magic technique.  It took a pile of pencils before I found just the right match for the colors.  I added a shadow of color behind the teacups using a stencil brush and distress inks.  It just looked to stark without the light color wash.
