tea time



I'm so thrilled to be hosting the gothic arch challenge this week. My new tea themed stamps from this lovely etsy shop made my subject choice easy. I do enjoy a good cup of tea. Afternoon tea is such a luxury that I decided to make this one in a black and white theme with pearls. The base for my arch is a piece of vintage wallpaper. I stamped the lady and teacup on other pieces of the same wallpaper and cut and pasted them on. The flowers are from a gorgeous pack of autumn leaves stickers. I finished it off with liquid pearls and hero arts pearls.

I hope you'll find time to play along in the challenge this week. Thanks for stopping by.
