Let's have tea.....



Hello everyone: I'm back with another card for the Power Poppy April Challenge "You Pick 3" and this time, I'm using the sketch from Mojo Monday by Julee Tilman. Here is my card.


The Power Poppy challenge asks to pick 3 markers, at random, or on purpose and use only this 3 colors for our card, I made 3 other cards with this fun challenge, you can check them HEREHERE and HERE if you'd like. For those cards I picked the image first and then the colors but this time around I picked the colors first and, based on what my hands grabbed from the marker box, I picked my image. The color Daffodil Delight was the first marker I grabbed and then, the other two are Tempting Turquoise and Wild Wassabi, but the yellow marker made me think of those adorable little Australian Parakeets that come in all kinds of beautiful colors so, as always when I'm in doubt I Google this birds and found one picture of this sweetie in bright yellow and green, awesome!!
This image is from Power Poppy's Short Stacks and all of the images are absolutely beautiful. Stamped in Canson water color paper with Versafine Onix Black ink and colored with the aqua painters. The pattern paper is from Lili of the Valley and the ribbon from my stash.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.


Both the sentiment and the tea pot and cup are from a retired Flourishes set called "Lets Have Tea".
Here are the banners that inspired my card.


Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

    1. Aileen, you can win that set if you participate in this challenge, if you don't have a Power Poppy stamp, it's ok, this is the best way to win one.
