Mojo164 - Cuppa Tea



First things, first. I love this stamp! I have coveted it for quite some time and now it's mine I tell you  - all mine :D It's a set from Stamping Bella called Cuppa Tea and I used it here to make this week's Mojo164 sketch challenge. Miss Julee is one of the best sketch designers out there and if you every need some inspiration, her Mojo Makers and herself are always there to provide it :D Thanks for kick starting this creation Julee!




The tea cups have been water coloured with tombow dual brush pens and popped up to be 3D. The background was shaded with water colours first,  then sponged...and then I added some final details under the saucer with my prismas and gamsol :) Yeah, that is a lot of colouring for just a few little whimsical tea cups but it was worth it!

That's it for now and just a reminder to you all, this week's Bellarific Friday challenge is to make some sort of Holiday/Christmas card. You can make it as simple or as detailed as you like and don't forget to email it to emily@stampingbella.com by Thursday to have it included in with the Bellarific Friday post over at Bloggabella.
