Tea Time Birthday


This was made for an order, as the recipient is not a fussy and frilly person, this is what I created.

For the feature panel I used a stamp that I won from a challenge on a Christian Cardmakers Group on Facebook.
 It is called Tin Can Mail by Inkadinkadoo.

I coloured it with Prismcolor pencils, and added a gold band on the cup and saucer and some accents on the tin with a signo metallic pen. 

Both rectangles were cut with Memory Box Stitched rectangle dies, and the sentiment gold embossed on the lower one.  They were both mounted with an edging of narrow lace.

The final details were these rhinestone flowers in opposite corners.

Hi Maxine, this is so feminine and very charming. It sure has a very nice shabby chic feel to it. The cup with gold on it's rims and saucer looks very pretty and that lace makes the whole image stand out. It looks like a tea towel. Very pretty card, indeed.

Such a pretty image and wonderful coloring on this project, Maxine! Thank you for blessing us with your artwork here at Word Art Wednesday. We are midway on our current challenge and I hope you join us again. Leaving you with the inspiration of God's Word found in 1 Corinthians 16:13-14 which tells us, "Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. Do everything in love." Have an awesome week.
