Watercolor Tea Cup Card

I went to a Card Convention in June and bought several fun new stamp sets.  This one is Catherine Scanlon Stacked.  I have a friend who loves tea and I thought this would make the perfect Birthday card for her.

I love fancy little teacups so I decided to emboss the cups in gold on Bristol paper.  I did a google search for teacups and used the results as inspiration for my color palette.  I painted with watercolor markers and then added an embossed sentiment on contrasting black cardstock.

Gold embossed and water-colored.

I really enjoyed making this card and think I will try a Get Well card next.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Time Out Food and Drink Challenge

Watercooler Wednesday Feminine Challenge


Seize the Birthday Water Challenge (tea is made with water and the card is water-colored)

Always Happy Birthday Water Challenge (tea is made with water and the card is water-colored)

Update:  My teacups were chosen as \”Watercooler Rockers\”!

Thanks for stopping by!
