2016 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day Seven: Happy International Tea Day!




Can you believe that tomorrow is the final day of the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop?!  I've been having so much fun creating and commenting!

Today we're celebrating International Tea Day!!! 


I knew that I wanted to ink up my new Altenew Vintage Tea Cup:


I stamped and watercolored it in Mowed Lawn.  The sentiment is from the same set, and I love it.  See the background poinsettia?  It's the Christmas Flower from STAMPlorations.  It has been inked up Fired Brick Distress ink and then I just quickly run my wet paintbrush around it.

This is about as Mixed Media as I get!


I just had to add the glittery gold strip at the bottom!

A big shout out to the following Super Sponsors:

 Make sure you swing by the blog for some fun inspiration!

I do have a giveaway today!  I love the Coffee Loving Papercrafters FB group for many reasons.  Thanks to my teamie + friend, Helen Gullett, she posted a great stamp deal over at Peachy Cheap and I'm sharing this with one of you:


Leave me a comment by Sunday, December 18 at 3:00 pm pacific and I'll announce the winner the following day!

Thanks so much for stoppin' by and I hope you get to celebrate International Tea Day!
