Winter Feathers n Tea Card for the Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop

Print

Today I’m showing you a card for the quarterly Coffee (or tea or cocoa) Lovers Bloghop! I just got the new Vintage Tea Cup set from Altenew and it was perfect for my card for today.

The paper is from the new Winter Wonderland paper pack by Simple Stories. It has the most lovely soft blue-greens in it. Fortunately for me, Ocean Tides by PTI matches perfectly! So I die cut my tea cup from this colour except the inside which I paper pieced in with ivory cardstock. By embossing the cup it made it easier to line up the liquid image stamp because you can overlap it slightly and not worry about it. I accented the teacup with BG 70, 72 and 75 Copic markers. The flowers on the teacup were stamped using images from Beautiful Day.

The feathers are by PTI also, I stamped them in kraft, ocean tides and chocolate ink with a little Hero Arts soft pool on the aqua feather. I did lots of layers of stamping using my MISTI to get the stripes and  ombre looks within each feather. For the dots, I used the stamps provided but when I stamped them, they looked too perfect. So I stamped each dot then inked my stamp again, stamping a bit to each side creating more of an oval. I also tried tilting my stamp block (not the MISTI) to only get about 2/3 of the dot then reinking and stamping the opposite side of the stamp, using only 2/3 of it again which makes sort of an oval as well. It was easier to do this last technique with the larger dots.

Enjoy, Rebecca
