My cup of tea!

Almost at the last minute! I want to tell to my new visitors that every card that I post here has been made with my own drawings. There is always a new drawing on every new post!

I made this card with my “Cup of Tea" and "My Cup of Tea Tag" drawings. I used two, because one of the challenges in which I will enter required two different stamps. I used the sketch of "Our Creative Corner" because I liked it a lot. I do like the final result with the mix of colors of this card in particular. I painted the cup, which have two layers, with watercolors and I added liquid embossing coat on top. As I printed the drawings in white cardstock, I needed to give some “age” to the the tag. I did it using much diluted Burnt Sienna ink. I love to work with inks:)

Thanks for your visit!
