A Cuppa Anyone?

Howdy folks!? I had in mind to make an autumnal card but ended up with a hot beverage card. My mind takes strange moves today. This small notecard reminds me of food markets in China, all those sacks with food and spices, even tea. I recently won the fabulous background stamp at Pixie's Snippets Playground, thank you so much Di...and parsnip of course! It's a terrific and huge stamp!

Challenges:
Addicted to clean and simple: Oriental (cup of tea)
Less Is More: Beverages
Pixie's Snippets Playground: This was a leftover paperstrip 
Snarky Sisters: O is for One (colour)

Materials used:
Craft Stamper freebie stamped with Memento black ink onto a leftover piece of heavy card stock. The image was stamped onto printer paper and used as a mask, leaving the cup bare. The Just Rite burlap stamp was inked with different Distress ink and stamped. I made shadows with Promarkers.
I used a score board ro make embossed lines and stamped the background stamp again.

Thank you so much for visiting, it means the world! I'll have some exciting news in a few weeks, I wont tell yet.

Love and hugs
Maarit

  3. Wow, this is an amazing card Maarit! I love the way you did that cup and saucer-an excellent win by the way. The colors and pattern are amazing and it really draws the eye in. I didn't even realized you used markers on this, so had to go back and have another look see. Amazing look to this card and I just love it. Hugs, Brenda
