Good morning crafters

The card base is 4" x 6" and, from the back,  I scored several lines, in graduating lengths on the right side of the card, so they would be prominent then added small pearls on the bottom

I've changed the background colour, in my 'photo booth'  from black to white and of course you these lines aren't showing as well because of this

I drew the shape of a tag onto a leftover piece of white piece of cardstock and cut it out.  I then made a mask of the teacup and saucer and secured it onto the tag and coloured it with a distress oxide ink

Next I stamped the sentiment and totally forgot to wipe the card with an anti-static  powder so because of this I ended up doing triple embossing! lol

With the sentiment stamped I sprinkled a clear embossing powder over it, because the oxide ink was still somewhat wet the powder stuck to that too and when I added heat it was very prominent and patchy
so I dabbed a clear embossing pad all over the tag, added more clear embossing powder, heat set it then repeated the process a further twice

Mounting foam was added to three sides and a tea-bag tucked into the side of the tag

  • abandoned coral distress oxide - Ranger
  • VersaMark Clear Embossing Pad - Tsukineko
  • VersaFine CLAIR 'Fallen Leaves' - Tsukineko
  • clear embossing powder - WOW
  • sentiment with teacup - Clarity Stamp
  • pearls - Creative Expressions
  • ribbon - my stash

Now for this week's card winner:
