Tea With Flopsey


This is another Flopsey stamp set I picked up at My Favorite Things called Tea With Flopsey. Don't tell my husband but I'm having a love affair with Flopsey (Hee Hee)!!! I'm really proud of my coloring job on this image! It turned out much better than the last one. I figured out more layers of color tend to smooth out the image. Now I need to work on some shading techniques. I goofed up a tad in coloring the coffee cup though... see the pink base... and the orange inside, OOPS! Let's just pretend that Flopsey is drinking Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks today, LOL!

Today's card base is Pinecone layered with a slightly smaller piece of Delilah Stripes patterned paper.  The strip on the left is a one inch strip of Yam layered on to a 1 1/2 strip of Pretty In Pink cardstock trimmed using the Scallop Edge Punch.  The image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on PTI White using the Tea With Flopsey stamp set and colored in using Copic Markers.

The image was layered on to a slightly larger piece of Pinecone.  Using my Word Window Punch I cut out two pieces of Yam cardstock, folded them in half, and attached them to the image.  After attaching the image to the card base with mounting tape I added the Kiaser Rhinestones.  To further embellish the card I made a bow using Pink Organdy Ribbon and added a button threaded with DMC White.  I tried using my new Bow Easy for the first time to make this bow but it didn't quite turn out so I will need to watch a video tutorial and practice some more.

Hope you have a fantastic day!
