The Card Concept #56: {Sweet Tea}

(This is my second post see Club Scrap's Creative License Blog Hop + Linky Party, please click HERE...)

Hello, Kraftie Friends!

It's time for a new challenge at The Card Concept - {Sweet Tea}

Here's the photo inspiration:

Feel free to use any of the styles of our team or better yet, share you own style by combining one or more of the styles. We want you to have fun and make a card in a style that you feel good about!

The styles are explained HERE.


And here's my mixed media card, inspired by some colors and the teacup with flower:

I embossed the background panel with Cuttlebug, gently inked it with VersaMark and heat embossed it in gold.

I didn't have a big teacup stamp, so I drew my own Flower Teacup, printed it and fussy cut it. I colored it with Copic markers and adhered it on with foam tape.
I printed flowers from Ann's Garden Digi Stamp Set, colored them with alcohol-based markers and cut them out. I placed them inside the teacup and also added a paper flower.
I stamped sentiment (CTMH) on a banner, adhered on card and added some dimensional paint.

I also added dimensional paint on the flower's center.

Finally, I brushed some diluted All-Puporse Ink (Imagine Crafts) on the bottom of the card.

  5. This is a wonderfully vintage look, a real vintage look. The flowers in a teacup and the embossed cardstock reminds me of trim on homes in the late 1800's. Thank you so much for posting your very beautiful art in the #232-#233 - Anything Goes FF Word Art Wednesday Challenge.
