The Challenge 39-My Cup of Tea

*** Scroll down to the post below or click HERE to see my card for this week's Mojo Monday sketch! *** 

The Challenge is back again with a new challenge!  This week we've got an inspiration challenge for you.  I was inspired by the photo's tea party theme and the soft, pretty colors.

My Cup of Tea card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Reverse ConfettiThe layout for my card comes from the current Deconstructed Sketch.  I colored the teacup image from the Reverse Confetti Be a Barista stamp set using Copic markers, then filled in the "tea" with kraft colored pigment ink.  After cutting out the colored image, I used foam tape to adhere it to a white die cut tag.  The "you're just my cup of tea" sentiment was stamped just above the cup in kraft ink.  A fishtail flag strip, anchored with a rose colored heart, was adhered just beneath the teacup.  I topped the tag with a pink bow tied with my Bow Easy.  It's been a while since I used it and I'm glad I remembered how it works!

I attached the finished tag to a blue cardstock panel that I'd topped with a strip of girly pink patterned paper.  The finished panel was adhered to a pale pink card base.
