It’s Tea Time for the OCC

Sharon challenged us to create a tea-themed project. Isn’t that fun! I have several tea and coffee themed sets so I got to choose. I settled on a tea set by CDS because it is so delicate and girly looking.

There really isn’t anything to tell you about you can’t figure out from the photo. Well maybe except the ribbon. I recently learned a trick to give ribbon an aged look. Smoosh brown ink on an acrylic block or your craft sheet. Spray your seam binding ribbon with water and spray the ink too. Then dab your crumpled ribbon into the brown ink. the ribbon looks old instantly!

I hope you will play along with us at the Our Creative Corner this week! Be sure to visit at least to see all the fabulous projects the design team has prepared! All the projects are gorgeous!

Enjoy, Rebecca
