Afternoon Tea

Happy Tuesday, everyone! I am sharing another card with you today made with images from the newly released London Elements by Artistic Outpost. I have also used images from Loverly London, also by Artistic Outpost. I just love how London Elements has expanded the versatility of the Loverly London and London Underground plates and I really love how the Afternoon tea and teacup, spoon and sugar can be used with this lovely lady to make a really feminine card. I began with Sea Salt card base and added some cabbage rose background paper. Images were stamped on card stock with Black Memento Ink and watercolored with Distress Inks. Embellishments include vintage buttons, cheese cloth, Ideology spinner pieces, and lemon yellow striped ribbon. Have you had an opportunity to check out the London Elements Artistic Gallery, yet? Why not make yourself a nice hot cup of tea, and browse through these beautifully inspired projects! Thanks for stopping by. Best wishes, Yvonne
