Try It Out Tuesday #21 - Invitation for Tea



It Tuesday and that means it's Try It Out Tuesday at Follow Your Heart, Susana, of Susana's Custom Art and Card Design's store blog. This week, the ever talented Suzaanne Dean challenged us to create an invitation. I received this gorgeously adorable "Tea For Two" from Victoria Case for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design (SCACD) and knew3 shed be perfect for this challenge and for an invitation to tea.

I followed the sketch fron Mojo Monday and loved it! I colored her with copics and Prismacolor pencils and OMS and highlighted her with Liquid Pearls, Smooch, Glossy Accents and my spica glitter pens. I added some Shimmerz to the butterfly and some Velvet Flock on the sunflower. I added Flower Soft around the bottom and don't you just love those Mulberry flowers? The paper is from Creative Imagination and I picked up the charms from a new scrapbook store I found. I just love this beauty and hope you enjoy her also.

Card Ingredients:

Tea for Two from Victoria Case for SCACD, Smooch, Flower Soft, Mulberry Flowers from Petaloo, Liquid Pearls, Velvet Flock from Doodlebug, charms, ribbon, Paper from Creative Imagination
