Time for tea
The challenge at Less is More #189 is a one layer card the subject of which is beverages
The cup and saucer stamp was a freebie with Craft Stamper magazine. I used masking for this card but the opposite way round than I normally do by masking out the background using a post-it note. I stamped the images onto the card and also on the post-t note. I cut out the image so that when I put it over the image on the card the background was protected. From the cut out image I cut the piece of paper out that was inside the cup handle and fixed it in place so that I didn't ink in the space.
I used Memento inks applied with a piece of foam to the cups and saucers. To create the pattern I cut a tiny flower from a border strip of one of the stamps in a collection from Crafter's Companion, Clearly Handstamped designed by 3 Birds. The alphabet stamps that I used for the sentiment were also from this set. I added partial shadows to the cups and saucers using an Ice Grey ProMarker
