Teacup Birthday

A quick monochromatic card for the Tea Party Tuesday challenge on Splitcoaststampers. I used mostly Stampin' Up products today. The background texture was created with the texturz plates in my cuttlebug. I misted the card-stock lightly with water which seems to do the trick to get a good impression with the texturz plate in the cuttlebug. My sandwich is Plate A, texturz plate, misted card-stock, embossing pad, card-stock as shims and B plate. My bow was made with the bow easy. I cut out the teacup and water colored with melon mambo. I did not want a deeply colored teacup so instead of coloring directly with my marker, I took the brush side of the marker and colored onto an acrylic block, then twisted my watercolor painter into the marked acrylic block to pick up ink.

I really like this Pun Fun stamp set from SU! It is not one of those sets that the minute you see it, you have to have it. {or at least it wasn't for me} But here's the reason I love it ~ it has a variety of images- eight altogether & you can make a quick card that looks great b/c of the image size (aprox 2X2). It is easy to make sets and duplicates. That's about it from me. Have a great day!
