Tea Cup with Flowers

As much as I enjoyed Christmas this year, I'm happy to be making something besides Christmas cards! Is it just me? Or is everyone ready to move on?

This is a Northwoods stamp called Tea Cup with Flowers . I stamped it on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder. The stamped image was colored using Tombow (water based) markers and a damp paint brush.



I used my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder to emboss the purple piece in the center to add a bit of texture. The cardstock I used is Majestic Purple Prismatics light and medium, and Pink Prismatics medium. The ribbon is May Arts .

I'm off to start taking down the Christmas tree and get it back in the attic for another year. But I'm thinking I may need a bit of a nap first! :-)

Thanks so much for stopping by. I have something new ready for you tomorrow.

Until then...
