JFF - Week 17 - Tea Cards


Well another challenge from Neet over on JFF.  This week she is asking for 'tea cards'.  Again, another new one on me, so had to go investigating.  Well apparently they have to have a white border all the way around.  The size is very small, 36mm x 68mm.  I used part of a CI stamp, inked them up with various colours of adirondack ink, spritzed them with water and stamped them.  Once dry I shaded the background with distress inks.

Love the look you have achieved with these Sam - they look like a set of beautiful watercolours. Just the right image for the stamps you have used too.

Yes Neet is lovely and speaks very highly of you too. Great tea cards you are definitely too young to remember them. I must have overlooked the white border part. Yours are fab just like little watercolors.
