This is the first Sunday of the New Year. We're off to a very cold start in my neck of the woods. Our new Challenge at 613 Avenue Create has the option of the Colors, Sights and Sounds of Winter. There's nothing I like more on a freezing Winter morning like this than a nice cup of tea:
The image is by our sponsor SquiggleFly - "Women Are Like Tea Bags." You get 3 images, the tea cup, a tea pot and this sentiment which I put inside the card:
I have a thing for tea. We are tea drinkers, no coffee in our house. I'll be using the tea pot image soon for sure. I'm a complete pushover for tea stamps and digi images!
The cardstock is Recollections. I made my own background paper, stamping the dark green CS with snow flakes using CTMH Olive ink. I colored the image with Sharpies and used a Copic Colorless Blender for the very first time. (It was a Christmas gift.) It's hard to see that I used my Clear Wink of Stella pen to add sparkle to the tea in the cup, the vapors rising from the cup, and the saucer. Love that Wink of Stella!
I'm entering these challenges: Card Makin' Mamas #78 - Anything Goes; Keep It Simple #30 - Anything Goes; and One Crazy Stamper - January Anything Goes.
Stay warm while you create your project for this week's challenge!
