My Cup of Tea

Hello again!

I hope you are having a great day since the last time I posted a few hours ago.. For me, good things and I cannot complain (knock on wood). As promised I am here on behalf of the Make My Monday Challenge Blog. First, here is my inspiration card.

Soft colors and intricate detail on the teacup make for a beautiful
focal image for this vintage-like card.
Theme for the week of 11/01
Shabby Chic
I have a sneaking feeling that this card is more Art Nouveau than Shabby Chic
but some of the elements of our theme are present.
Old vintage image of the teacup is so pretty with
all its flowers and gold flourishes.
Colored the gold using PrismaColor pencils and then fussy cut the cup
and added dimensional tape to pop it up off the card.
Like I said earlier, I think this card does have a vintage feel but after completion I took a look back and thought 'hummm.... looks like an Art Nouveau card'. But the flourishes, embellishments, and colors are Shabby. So do I think this is a success? Yes I do, just a bit different then most cards of the same theme.. It is a different spin on it.... Right?

I do hope to see you at Make My Monday this week and you can show me what Shabby Chic really means! I am looking forward to see what you come up with this week.

Well that is it for me!! I am going to bed early due to the time change.. I am not a fan of Daylight Savings Time.. Fall back/Spring forward it doesn't matter it messes things up for a couple of days then we all get back to normal.. Hope everyone who celebrated Halloween had a safe and fun night... Take care all and see  you sooner then later.

All the best,
Shawna
