Plus! We will be giving away the stamp set and paper pad Julia used in today's project to one lucky winner, so keep reading for details...
As time goes by it seems that I grow more and more like my mother. We are no longer blessed to have her with us, but the memories are sweet and I always picture her with a cup of tea. It was her favorite thing to drink and tea time would be every few hours of the day. I'm finding myself more and more drawn to the comforts of tea and the sweet In Other Words: Tea stamp set kept catching my eye in the Taylored Expressions store. I couldn't resist.
This set is perfect for watercoloring and as watercoloring is so popular right now, I thought I'd have a little creative fun with this technique. Recently I purchased some watercolor markers, but you can also paint this image with liquid or pan watercolors as well.
I used a whimsical color scheme of mixed and matched dishes on this image. It's stamped onto watercolor paper, then watercolored and then stitched to the card front. I love stitching any card, but in particular watercolor ones, as it really holds the heavy paper on well.
The Rainbow Brights paper pad makes a fun background for the card. The bright colors coordinate perfectly with my watercoloring. This set is full of sweet sentiments and I adore the fonts used. I used the "If life gives you lemons, put them in your tea" quote and stamped it along the bottom of the design.
Do you have sweet memories to share over a cup of tea?
