SC293 - Tea and Love

Hi all! I'm back with a super quick post so that I can show you that once in a while I get a chance to participate in some SCS Challenges ;) I made this card for the SC293 Sketch Challenge and got to take some new stamps for a test drive in the process. of love the smell of new rubbah in the wee morning hours! lol

I just recently put in my first order for some of the new releases by The Cat's Pajama's stamp company and let me tell you...I will be back with a vengeance! These stamps are awesome and I was thrilled with the shipping times too :D

For this card, I combined the A Cuppa set with the sentiment from the Ship Happens set to create this sweet and fun little A2 sized card. The bear has been water coloured with tombows, the background was sponged and the apron was paper pieced. I also had a chance to utilize some of my much neglected felt flowers from SU but I added a button to them to jazz it up a bit :)

Alrighty. That's all for now as I am off to bed to saw some logs :) Have a great night everyone!

Card Recipe:

Stamps: TCP - Ship Happens and A Cuppa
Paper: Gina K, Water Colour, Black, October Afternoon DP (Ducks in a Row)
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Mustard, Cocoa, Caramel
