Fortune Tea

Hello.  Welcome.   This weeks ATC theme for Janis' birthday challenge is TEA.  So I grabbed Stamplorations Tag O'Coffee dies and got cutting.  

I cut my ATC base from a scrap of gold card using a Sizzix die.  I cut the stitched tag from scrap of red card and the teapot and steam from some corrugated card.  I distressed the edges of the ATC and tag using my knife and smeared Walnut Stain DI all over.  The little sentiment actually came off a Yogi tea bag (choco tea flavour).  In case you don't know Yogi tea bags come with a little string and tag, each of which has a little saying on it.  This one I loved so I kept it......

'Live light, travel light, 
spread the light, be the light.'


Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz

  5. I LOVE the bold red of the tag and how you offset it just a tiny bit on this ATC. Fabulous teapot and steam die cuts. Genius of you to use a real tea tag as the sentiment on here.....and what an inspiring one it is. I can see why you saved it and I am honored you shared it with all of us on this ATC.

    Thank you so much for joining in my ATC Birthday Party!!!
