Tuesday Tea: Mixed Media Card
In My Cups
This last week has driven me to my cups. Thankfully, my beverage of choice is tea or else my family might be in for some trouble. Haha. Lots is happening in my life so I have been very thankful for relaxing weekends with family to ease some of the stress. Over the last two weeks we have spent our Saturday morning in jammies, eating popcorn, playing Catan and watching people build with Lego’s on Youtube. I love watching my little’s get excited over family time and I hope that it will always be this way. These have been some of the best Saturday’s I have ever had. Being surrounded by the people I love is stress-relieving.
Now that my boys are older, I love that they are able to play challenging board games with us. What are your favorite weekend activies or board games?
Creating the Card
I made this card for PaperArsty using their new paints and Scrapcosy stamps.
I started by applying tissue paper with glue to my background. My background is lightweight chipboard, painted with black gesso.
I used grunge paste with a PaperArtsy stencil in the background. I also stenciled with the Fresco Finish Paints and stamped. Once all dry, I sprayed water with PaperArtsy Infusions. The stamps have been painted using the Fresco Finish paints and fabric and fiber were layered to give the stamped images extra depth.
Lastly, I splattered gesso over the entire card.
So glad that you joined me for Tea Day today. Any chance I get to share tea makes me happy! If you read my post last week, you might remember that I shared a beautiful Tealyra White Spicy Pear Tea with Hibiscus & Cinnamon that was on my Amazon wish list. Guess what? My sweet friend read my post and two days later, I received this tea in the mail! I was surprised and so blessed by her gift as it arrived on a difficult day. It is just as amazing as I thought it would be. The lovely bit of spice from the cinnamon compliments the pear wonderfully. If you love fragrant fruity teas with a light taste, this tea is for you!
I am linking to Elizabeth and Bleubeard‘s for t-day.
Happy Tea Day.
