Take time for Tea

Supplies : Paper Tres Jolie by My Minds Eye; Button and Tea for Two stamp set by PTI; White Embroidery Floss; Inks and markers by CMTH; white gel pen

I made this card using the SC234 sketch on the splitcoast sketch challenge forums. After stamping the tea pot a few times I realized I need to start getting reinkers. I've had my stamp pads for 2-3 years now and I only have 2 reinkers, yikes. I tried to improve my sorry little pot by stamping the outline in sorbet and then coloring in the design with markers and putting some highlights with my white gel pen. It looked a lot better after that and even though my image didn't come out crisp I think it turned out pretty cute. Anyway, have a terrific Thursday!

What a cute card! I love all the stitching. I'm there with ya on the re-inkers. I just tried to use one of my ink pads last night and it wasn't so hot, lol.
