A bit of a change from all my Christmas projects to play along with the Colour Inkspirations #CI133 challenge. As I saw this photo inspiration, part of me wanted to use my favourite bird from the Perched in a Tree stamp set but I resisted!

Instead I’ve opted for a teacup stamped in Coastal Cabana with the spaces coloured with a Light Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend.

You can get the Tea Boutique stamps and dies on sale during our Seasonal Sale but the sale ends TODAY! Purchase them separately as it will give you a better price than purchasing as a bundle. Regular price $88, Sale Price $72.45. That’s a saving of $15.55.

I die cut the palm leaves from a piece of cardstock which I randomly stamped with some blotchy images with the Artistically Inked stamp set using Granny Apple Green and Mossy Meadow inks. Then I blended over the Cardstock with Granny Apple Green using a Blending Brush. This is a technique I use quite a lot as it gives me a variegated look on my leaves.

I used the sketch from Freshly Make Sketches #fms562 as inspiration for the layout of my card. The strips of Fresh Freesia DSP were blended over with Gorgeous Grape to deepen the colour.

A splattering with a Merry Merlot Marker adds the final colour of our palette to my card. Thank you for stopping by and for a list of products used on this card please scroll to the bottom of this post.
