Time for a cuppa
Its HOT BEVERAGE time over at Gingersnap Creations for GC#85
I made this card using stamps from Scrolls Work Stamps, although as I write this, the Miss Tart (main image) is unfortunately out of stock at the uk stockist of Scrolls Work that I know of, Happy Daze, but available with the other two tea related stamps from Scrolls Work in the USA.The background paper from Pink Paislee is available from Happy Daze though and I've used its clear embossed surface as a resist effect and blended inks over it (it was originally a very pale cream, almost white). Its lace effect reminded me of old fashioned English tea rooms. You can also purchase the tea spoon from Happy Daze too. Its part of a 7 Gypsies set, or you could opt for the smaller more decorative filigree spoon that Moira stocks for 65p or the mini spoon at 20p.Charms can be found here.
And the tea bag? Yes, thats a real tea bag :0)
What ideas can you come up with that are hot beverage related? Have a cuppa and have a think :0) And we'll hopefully see you over at Gingersnap Creations.
