Polly Says Milk and Two Sugars

Hello.  Welcome.  Can't think of anything witty to say so I'll just show you the card.....

I've used stamps from Power Poppy's Short Stacks. I CASEd Kathy's card.  I started by repeatedly stamping the sentiment stamp and embossing with white powder.  I gave the panel a watercolour wash using Tea Dye and Espresso distress inks.  I stamped and embossed the stack of cups and then coloured with various shades of brown distress inks.  

I added some rhinestones to the bottom cup and the flower on the top cup and added the sentiment.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz

  1. I really like the technique that you used on the background here. I must file that away for future use. This is a great card for any occasion. A must have card, just in case. Glad that you used a Power Poppy stamp that will give you two entries. Thanks for joining us at the Mod Squad Challenge this week. Good luck and hope to see you again.

  2. This made me smile and brought back memories from when I was small of an elderly great aunt who had a budgerigar which was allowed the freedom of the house - it often sat on the table and stuck it's beak into tea cups!
