Thinking Of Tea - MTME Pretty Patterns Sketch 03

Hi all!!  It's Thursday, and that means another My Time Made Easy Pretty Patterns Sketch Challenge.  I've enjoyed participating in the challenges these last couple of weeks, and inking stamps that were starting to collect some dust.  I also have some exciting news to share with you.  I am now a part of the Pretty Patterns Sketch Challenge Team!!  Somebody pinch me!!  I am still doing the happy dance over here. Dancing Pictures, Images and Photos

For this week's card, I pulled out a set that had not even seen ink yet, however is dear to my heart, called A Spot Of Tea.  Since I'm a heavy tea drinker, when this set was released I just had to have it!  I started off by printing one of the digital designer papers from the A Loving Heart collection.  I then allowed the colors of the digital paper to guide my color selection. 

After stamping my teacup images in memento tuxedo black ink onto white paper, I then used some PTI color spots for the roses and leaves before taking my prismacolor markers out and coloring the tags and steam.  After all of the coloring was done, I cut out one teacup, tag & steam to pop up with various sizes of dimensionals and pop dots. There is actually a lot of dimension on this card.  Here's a close up:

As each colored image was cut out, or layered, I sponged Stampin Up!'s Pretty In Pink dye ink around the edges before finally sponging the edge of the card itself.  For the final touches, I used some Stampin Up! bold bright brads and a Martha Stewart pre-made bow with some glue dots. 

Thanks for stopping by today.  If you haven't participated in any of the new My Time Made Easy challenges, you really should.  They're a lot of fun!
