Hello everyone! welcome to my blog. It is National Tea Day and here in the UK is celebrated across the country in tea rooms, hotels, pubs and cafés through special events and charitable fundraising events, including a tea ‘Fes-Tea-Val‘ at Chiswick House & Gardens in London.
For my card today I usedMae the Mouse stamp set by Honey Bee Stamps, the sentiments is from“Perfect Blend Stamp set“, I also used Bee Bold Alphabet Honey Cuts ( die set) and Double Stitched Square Honey Cuts.
Ok so for today I went a bit crazy. I wasn’t fussy about my colouring and this is my first distressed brownish background ever. When thinking about tea I just couldn’t think of any other colour.
I used Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper (217 grams) because it is awesome to use with water-based markers.
To add colour to the background,I applied an easy technique called “ink smooching” and I used a selection of brown and yellow Distress inks.
I first applied the ink directly from the ink pad on a piece ofclean film, I sprayed water over and then I smooched the ink on the already stamped and die cut panel. I simply tapthe creased and inked clean film over and overthe paper using different ink colours.
I allowed each layer of ink to dry before repeating the process with the next colour and I was being careful of not covering the stamped images with the ink. I didn’t mask the images.
