Tea time card ft HoneyBee Stamps

HoneyBee Stamps Tea Time

Hi everyone,

I have been away from my blog for quite a while, but it feels good to be back sharing my creativity with you.

I am using the Tea Time stamp set from Honey Bee, along with the coordinating die set.

I stamped out all images on white cardstock, using Gina K Amalgam black ink.

I am using my Artists markers to colour everything. I used colouring pencils over the top, which helps to enhance the image- and is actually very easy to do.

After die-cutting everything, I can now work on the background. I started with some ink blending with Faded Jeans, Salty Ocean and Squeezed Lemonade, cut down to about 4.5″x6.5″.

I wanted to create a piece with some texture, so I am using a stencil with an opaque texture paste from Ranger over the top. The stencil is called Framework from MFT. I left this to dry for about an hour. Remember to wash your tools straight away…

I think the texture paste has made the background less bright, which I’m not sure I like?

I arranged the die cut images to a composition I liked and then adhered every thing with foam tape.

I thought it looked a bit unfinished, so I took out some Nuvo Glitter drops in blue lagoon in between the spaces of the stencil work and left to dry.

I forgot to add my sentiment first, but thankfully, I was able to pop it into my MISTI tool, and stamp the phrase ‘let’s have tea’ with Gina k amalgam black ink.

I mounted the whole panel on to a layering piece of black card stock, using Tombow Mono Adhesive roller.

Using the same tape, adhering this to a 5×7 card base completes the card.

I would love to hear your thoughts on today’s post, leaven a comment below or on my Instagram or Facebook page.

I hope the next post won’t be so far away🤞🏾

See you next time,

Veronique 💜
