Retro Tea Shoppe...

Hi there,

I pulled together this week's Retro sketch with the Pals Paper Arts colour challenge and found some 'inky' time last night...


I used the new Tea Shoppe set as I could see a stack of teacups in these pretty colours!

I've only just realised that I used Pool Party rather than Baja Breeze for the blue on this card... Duh! Clearly I wasn't completely awake when I put this one together lol! I stamped the small tea cups in the three different colours and cut them out and created the label by stamping the image once with Pool Party and punching out with the oval punch, then another time with Calypso Coral and trimming the little banner. I layered it onto a scalloped oval punched from Calypso Coral card. The So Saffron background panel was stamped with the Very Vintage wheel for a bit of extra interest.

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Tea Shoppe, Very Vintage wheel
Ink: So Saffron, Cakypso Coral, Pool Party
Paper: Tea Time Simply Scrappin dsp, Calypso Coral, So Saffron, Whisper White
Tools: oval and scalloped oval punches
Accessories: Pool Party seam binding ribbon, Calypso Coral brad, rhinestones

Thanks for stopping by!
