You're Tea-riffic!

It's a snowy Tuesday here in New England, perfect IMHO, to hunker down in my stamp room.  :)
I was a little afraid when I saw this week's Mojo sketch, Mojo126. I wasn't even sure if I'd give it a try, but as you can see, I tried and succeeded! I started with the darling Scarlett the Teacup Girl image from Stamping Bella and paired her with some pretty Vintage Valentine patterned paper.

Scarlett is perfect for lots of dimension so I stamped her three times with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Bella's Bestest Paper. I coloured the images with copics then did some detail cutting and popped the cup, then popped the flower on the cup. Oh, and I popped the flowers in her hair too. I added a layer of clear Glaze pen to the cup then a cocoa Glitter dot to the flower center.
The solid layers are SU blush blossom, Prism suede brown medium, Prism blush red light, and Prism razzleberry medium. I ran the one rectangle strip through my swiss dots Cuttlebug folder then inked the raised dots with Memento Desert Sand. I created a "faux-poxy" sentiment sticker by simply coating the circle with two layers of clear Glaze pen...presto!...customized epoxy sticker look!
This card has a collage/vintage feel to me. It's not usually my style but I'm quite pleased with the result. My favourite part though is all the dimension...I wish you could see it IRL!  :)

I'm heading outside to snap a few pictures of the snowy trees. They look gorgeous...like a winter wonderland!

Thanks for stopping by!
