'tea'rific !!


stamps: morning cup & wonderful mother from stamping up
inks: tim holtz distress ink pads (tumbled glass& broken china), memento (tuxedo black)& promarkers
extras: craftwork cards digi cardstock, 6x4 card blank & white ribbon

i've worked with the squares template for the fab friday challenge. I thought that the morning cup stamp set would work well for this, and since my mum loves tea ... It seemed like the perfect card to make for her birthday!! I chose an image for 3 squares and a sentiment for the other one (but of course you could use a fourth image instead). I stuck to a limited colour palette, using muted tones for the images, with shades of blue. the background was stamped using a larger image from the set, used again on the inside of the card to coordinate. I finished it off with the ribbon bow in the space beneath the squares (but you could pop your message here as an alternative).
