Pansies in Teacup


When I discovered this digital teacup image by Fred She Said, I just had to purchase it.  This is the pre-colored purple pansy stamp and I love it!  The image was cut out using the Spellbinders large standard circles #6.  It was layered to another circle in Almost Amethyst and then mounted onto a white doily.  A ribbon tag was cut from Shimmery White paper and Tea Time was inked first by loading it with VersaMark then Vintage Violet ink.  I embossed it with clear embossing powder and a heat gun.  Wisteria Wonder ruffled ribbon was placed through the slots.


Next, I stamped the teaspoon onto Shimmery White paper with VersaMark and embossed it with silver embossing powder.  The inside was colored with a Cool Gray No. 1 Copic marker and a little bow was adhered to the handle - so sweet!


The inside sentiment by Stamping Scrapping called 'Tea Time' was stamped in Vintage Violet and embossed with clear embossing powder.  Sponging was done in Almost Amethyst.  A pansy flower was added to the corner and I was done.


I hope the gals over at Tea Time Tuesday will enjoy this card.  It's the next best thing to a real teacup  :-)  I will be joining Make It Monday as well as the following parties: 

Tea Time Tuesday @ Rose Chintz Cottage
Tea Cup Tuesday @ Martha's Favorties
Tea Cup Tuesday @ Artful Affirmations
Tuesday Cuppa Tea @ Antiques and Teacups

I like the blue/purple here. Very smooth colour.

Do you know that stamp carving is very common here in Malaysia? And in Indonesia even more so. I once got our company stamp copied in less than 5 minutes after I accidentally damaged the dratted thing. And the man did it by hand!!! In Bandung, that was.
