Time for tea!

At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Show Us Your Layers.We have the fabulous Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps as our sponsor.For full details on how to play pop along to the challenge blog.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT and GDT’s wonderful work.

For my card I’ve used Floppy Latte Designs Tea Time Stacked Teacups coloured with Gioconda Soft Pastel Pencils and edged with Antique Linen Distress Ink.I’ve used the Tim Holtz Paper Distresser around the edges and  coated the whole piece in Crackle Accents with more ink rubbed into the cracks one it was dry.The papers are all Floppy Latte Designs Swiss Dots Digital Paper Pack Set 3 and have had Distress Ink and the paper distresser used on them.I managed to use every paper in the set and with this many layers I thought a Shabby Chic look would be perfect.I’ve added pearls,ribbon,a gold charm toned down with Umber ProMarker and lilac jute ribbon.The doily and flowers were cut using dies from the same set.
