Featured Stamper #137

This is my card for last Sunday's Featured Stamper (tankgirl) on SCS.

I chose this card to case.

Changes I made:
Omitted the tag
Stamped My image on the top panel
Made my own dp for bottom panel
Stitched around the edge

I used this beautiful and fun new release TEA-RRIFIC from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS.

WHAT I DID: My card is 4x4. I made my white panel just 1/8" smaller than the card. Cut the mambo melon 2 1/4 x 3 7/8 and stamped my teabags in Mambo Melon then tea time with versamark before adhering to the white. Then with ruler made faint 1/8" border on entire card front. Paper pierced 1/8" holes around, then erased the pencil marks. I then stiched using 2 strands of DMC floss and stitched ever other stitch keeping the look tankgirl had on her card. I then stamped and heat embossed the teacups in chocolate chip. Then stamped the teacup and teapot on watercolor paper. I watercolored using ink pads and an aqua painter. Then I heat embossed the sentiment. That's it.

Thank you so much for visiting me.
