You Are Tea-rrific

What do you do when you hit a creative slump? To break out of my slump, I grabbed the March SOTM, Tea-rrific, and created a card. I kept the process simple to begin with, choosing the colors and card design. Sea Glass and White Daisy are the feature colors on this card, with touches of Whisper and Ruby.

I added texture to the front of the card using the Wood Slats Embossing Folder, Sea Glass Glitter Paper, heat embossing the sentiment, and popping the teacup with Thin 3-D Foam tape. I stamped the sentiment with the Whisper Mini Pigment Ink Pad and used Clear Superfine Embossing Powder. The patterned paper is from the Dreamin' Big Paper Pack.

I stamped the teacup with Juniper Ink for a subtle tone-on-tone look. I used a Copic marker (BG10 Cool Shadow) to add a bit of shading. To add a light touch of color to the tag, I squeezed ink into the lids of my Whisper and Ruby Ink Pads, spritzed with water, and used the Small Round Waterbrush to gently apply color. I also added a little Whisper "wash" behind the cup.

Coordinating the inside of the card adds a finishing touch.

Thanks for stopping by today!
