Anyone For a Cuppa?

Before I give the details of this card can I just say that I love it (I know, blowing my own trumpet lol)  and it turned out better than I thought it would :o) I'm entering it into the following challenges

The Pink Elephant #150 with a photo inspiration

and Divas by Design #37  anything goes

The first thing that I did was to stamp the teacups onto white paper and then coloured them using Promarkers.  I didn't stamp them directly on the card in case I got the spacing wrong or messed up the colouring

After I had edged the white strip I added the white dots to the cups and saucers and then cut them out and adhered them to the card

Finished off with my favourite sentiment stamp

Materials used

Cup and saucer stamp from Craft Stamper
Memento ink pad
Background paper from Simply Homemade
Classic triple scallop Edgeabilities dies
White gel pen
Woodware Tiny Phrases stamp set
