My cup of tea :)

Hi there!

Happy Monday and thanks for popping in to take a look at the card I have to share!

I'm joining the Fusion card challenge today where they have a beautiful picture to inspire us. I usually try to take on the challenge to combine the sketch and inspiration photo... it was a bit tricky for me this time, because of the layered nature of the sketch... so I looked at the sketch with CAS eyes 👀... and this is what happened in my craft room over the weekend :

I started by creating the polka dot pattern on the teacup ( I love tea ~ Uniko Studio )

Create a polka dot pattern with masking technique

To minimize the layers for a clean look, I masked the card front and stamped the background panel directly on the card base using Beautiful blooms set ~ Uniko Studio.

Inks used :

  • Versafine Onyx Black.
  • Altenew inks :  Parrot, Pink Diamond, Pinkalicious, Rubellite.

Teacup and flower were cut out using my Silhouette cameo and adhered to the card base with foam tape.

Also sharing my card at :

Simon says stamp Wednesday challenge ~ Clean & Simple.

Have a great week!

I was so taken by your polka dot teacup. I have a red one just like it that I inherited from my grandmother. Thank you for reminding me of someone precious in my life with your beautiful card.

This is so pretty and cheerful, Hannelie! Using the inner circle of plastic ringholders as masks is a cleaver idea! Thanks for sharing how you did it! Hideko
