Hello. Welcome. Nearly the end of the month again!! Where does the time go. I've had my Die-Namites dies on my desk for a few days hoping for inspiration to strike so I can join in with their sketch and dare challenge. Then Mark's Finest Papers wants a teabag holder. Now as a dedicated tea drinker how could I resist? Then there's the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, which wants Kraft and closes tomorrow, without me having an entry in sight!! And they all came together like this....
I used a piece of printed kraft for my base and added some black archival around the edge, and an extra few smears. I cut two Die-Namites Windy Wheat die from kraft card and added some chocolate ink. The burlap is a piece Kay sent me that I have been hoarding. Thanks Kay. Hugz. The little tea bag pocket was a free gift with an order from Unity Stamp Co. I stamped the sentiment, masked it, and stamped the image from Crafty Individuals Tea Tree stamp set. I added some strands from the burlap and a maple leaf brad to the tea pocket. I have simplified the sketch and thought it needed a little more so I used the sentiment stamp to go around the edge of the card.
Here's a close up of the tea pocket. I decided to keep with the colour scheme and added a chocolate tea bag to my tea pocket. This one doesn't have a little string so I added a burlap thread loop.
