For my third and probably final card for the hop I decided to use a stamp set that Ann Custer sent me as a winning prize from the last Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. I'm not much of a tea drinker but I love this beautiful image and thought it would make a lovely thank you card. I stamped the image using Memento tuxedo black ink. I colored the image using Copic markers in shades of warm grey, pink, and light green. I added some clear Wink of Stella glitter pen to the teapot, cup, and spoon for some beautiful shimmer. I then added some pink Stickles onto the roses for some dimension and additional glittery shine. I cut my panel out using a Nestibilities circle die and matted it onto a piece of chocolate chip brown cardstock that I felt wasn't dark enough so I colored it darker with my Copic E49 marker. That gave it that dark espresso color I was looking for. I cut that piece of cardstock out using an MFT pierced circle die and matted the two together and added some dashed lines using a Zig writer pen in chocolate. I layered some gorgeous pink patterned papers from the My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Madison Avenue 6x6 paper collection. I cut the fish tail banner using a Jillian Vance banner die. I added a few espresso sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and that completes my final card for the hop. Enjoy!
