I wanted to use a tea themed sentiment, but had this idea to use a tiny little tag for the tea pot. I ended up using just the “T” from the sentiment, hoping those who might see this would understand what it stands for! Wishful thinking? I just love this set from Clearly Besotted! I used a Copic marker to color the three spots of tea pouring into the cup. I used the negative die cut of the cup to sink the cup into the card a little and popped up the tea pot to give the appearance of it hovering over the cup a bit. The entire middle panel was popped up with foam dots after adding the pierced frame and three dots of pouring tea.
I created this card for this week’s Clean & Simple Challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers: a color challenge consisting of Sahara Sand (tan), Primrose Petals (bright pink) and Calypso Coral (coral) and white.
I can’t say I’m really in any kind of mood for hot tea right now. This week’s weather is hot, hot, hot! The boys are playing with a lot of water whenever they are outdoors and we’re enjoying our fair share of popsicles! This momma-to-be is not exactly enjoying the humidity that has arrived, so is hoping next week will be a bit kinder with swimming lessons and the county fair as destinations on the outing list!
