I collect tea stamps and this new set, Tea for Two made a great addition to my collection. :)

I stamped the image in black and colored it with Prismacolor pencils and odorless mineral spirits. I found this sketch on a blog somewhere (don't remember where, sorry). The edges of the layers were stitched with thick, gray thread. I sewed the buttons on to the base layer with thread and ribbon. Remember: NO NAKED BUTTON HOLES! LOL The buttons are all from SU. The pink layer is stamped with a linen background using white craft ink, but it's really subtle and kinda hard to see.

Stamps: Tea for Two, linen SU
Ink: Black, white

Paper: white, basic gray, pretty in pink, going grey

Accessories: SU buttons, thread, Janome sew mini, white taffeta ribbon, pink grosgrain ribbon, red line dimensionals, scalloped border punch, Prismacolor pencils, odorless mineral spirits, blending stumps
Have a wonderful day! I'll have another card for you tomorrow, so check back.
