Tea Anyone?


I thought I'd give you a new twist this week with this vintage 6 x 6 card. I used Vintage Alice Printable Stamp Sheets, a set I bought from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff, before I was on her design team.  She has a few Vintage Alice sheets to choose from, one of them is in color too.  I also used one of my favorite papers, Lindsay's Stamp Stuff Bold Black and White, printed on Stampin Up More Mustard.  The Chestnut Theme challenge over at Gingersnap Creations is Hot Beverage, the Mad Hatter and his tea is my interpretation.  I used the sketch from Card Patterns.  I don't know if you can see it, I used the Utee thick embossing powder on the Mad Hatter and then gave it an aged crackled look, I printed him with the color change option in Word.  I also used Tim Holtz Weathered Wood, and Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Circles.  Be sure to stop by Lindsay's blog The Frugal Crafter to see what she has made for us this week and to get your Thursday Freebie.  And don't forget my Design Team Sisters, they are all so super talented!
