My Artistic Adventures Challenge #3

Good morning everyone!

This is my second post this morning so if you are looking for the Gecko Galz Steampunk post please go HERE

It's time for a new challenge over at 
My Artistic Adventures! 

Our theme is


Create any NEW tangible item, Card, tag, ATC, Layout, altered art piece, Banner, pretty much anything you can come up with that is tangible using some of my digital images (or others).

(Sorry no digital entries)

Here is a look at what I created.....

A cup of tea and a good book always warms my heart,
body and soul as well!

From My Artistic Adventures Etsy I used the new paper line 
Shabby Chic Valentines Sweethearts Bitty pack of paper for the background
the freebie Valentines Banner set that Heather is giving away.
(info below about how to get that)

After I printed out the banner pieces, full size, I though 
"I want to make a little banner to go across the top of the card"
so I printed another set, smaller! 
Unfortunately they weren't small enough so I printed another set...even smaller!

Did I use them?


I used one of the first print...original sized!

Now I have a variety sized spare collection! 

The book cover, tea rose image and the label are all from Graphics Fairy.

The teapot and cup are cute stamps from my stash.

And the hot cup of tea...
that is always sitting right beside me on my desk!

The image below is a closer look at the Heart background paper and a little bit of the pink banner.

I used a bit of vintage photo & tea dye distress inks for the stamps and edges of the images & papers,
rusty hinge distress marker to make the stitching lines around the background and banner,
diamond stickles on the rose, tea cup steam and the drip coming out of the teapot
a piece of twine around the book image
(also inked with what was left on my inking sponge)

I hope you enjoyed my inspiration piece and will hop over to the challenge blog to check out the rest of the DT's projects!

Add biscuits or cake to the tea and a good book and I'm there! Fabulous card - I love the layers and the twine wrapped across that pretty rose.
