Coffee and Tea!

Evening All,

I've been out enjoying myself over the past few days so I apologize for only just catching up with visiting .

The background for this card was some white card.  I coloured it with a used and still damp teabag.  I think lots of us did this before distress inks.

I stamped some splatters from a Visible Images set.  The sentiment and coffee cup are from Stamping Up.  I used Dovecraft snippets for the coffee cup, coloured the top with a promarker and added a recycled coffee stirer.

The piece of hessian and string are also snippets.  So I'm off to the Snippets Playground with my second entry.

Happy Crafting to you all..

Oh Baaaa-b!! Love your card. Yes I remember using the trusty t-bag, but it was always tricky for me as I use leaves and not bags!! Typical!!
See you at practice tomorrow!!

Hi Barb! I hear screams of the 'rehearsals laughter' from the Playground right now - and the faint bleating of a sheep being chased by Sam's dog! Thank goodness I'm safely tucked up on the bed here out of harm's way - although Parsnip was raring to go and scampered out to play well over half an hour ago.

LOVE this card - sums up a messy (in a nice way) cup of coffee perfectly.

Hugs

What a lovely card Barb and the organic feel with the teabag staining and the hessian and twine works really well. I love the VI splatters too. I've been looking back over your wonderful creations and I have to mention your RD card with the glitter covered napkin which is a fantastic idea. I'm sorry I haven't been to visit sooner but have been so busy for the last week or two but things have quietened down a but now. x

I've done tea dye with fabric, but never tried with c/s...and what a lovely patina you achieved. Love the mottled vintage look with that texture of the burlap...and a great look for this cup of java. Cute sentiment to go along with the coffee cup too. Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, TFS & Hugs too.

I echo everyone else's wondering comments. This card is brilliant and I love that you did the colouring with a "still damp" teabag!

Hugs, Sarn xxx
