Coffee and Tea

Hello folks, I'm a bit late with my inspiration for the new challenge today over at Make My Monday. This is because I had an extremely busy weekend and then had a very early start this morning to take my car in for a service so I'm writing this in need of matchsticks to keep my eyes open!
Our theme this week has been chosen by Joan and she would like us to take Coffee or Tea as our inspiration. I managed to mislay my coffee and teacup stamps (until I'd made my card of course!) so the cute digital image from Aurora Wings came to the rescue. Isn't the little kitten adorable?

I printed out the digital image on to smooth cartridge paper and coloured with a mix of Aquamarkers, watercolour pencils, Derwent Inktense pencils and Distress inks. I then trimmed it to a panel and applied Tumbled Glass Distress ink round the edges with an ink applicator.

Here's a little close-up so you can see the cute kitten a bit better.

I then printed out the roses corner image also by Aurora Wings on to the cartridge paper, coloured it as before and cut the image out.
I then dry embossed a panel of lilac pink card with a Cuttlebug Anna Griffin folder and glued this to an A5 cream textured card blank. I die cut 2 Marianne Design lace corners from light aqua paper and glued these on the right hand corners, adding the cut out rose image on the left.
I stamped the sentiment (from the Kanban coffee and tea set I couldn't find earlier!) on the teacup panel with Archival Watering Can ink and glued this on to finish.

Have a great week.
Hugs, Fliss xx
