When I first seen these gorgeous blue floral patterns, I immediately fell in love. They are so reminiscent of the blue and white china that my great grandma had on display in her dining room.
Those sweet memories inspired me to create a cute tag featuring a little afternoon tea scene.
To start, I used my Cricut to cut out a teapot, teacup, and saucer from the patterned paper and a spoon from white card stock. I used a mix of cool gray Copic markers to add dimension to the pieces and color in the spoon. I also used a white gel pen for adding highlights.
I cut the tag from another patterned paper in the collection to 3" x 5 1/2" and trimmed off the top two corners. I added a white tablecloth to the scene using white card stock and a lace edge die from Pinkfresh Sudio.
I used the same pattern as the tea set and layered it under the white card stock piece. I thought the scene needed another little pop of color, so I used a floral stamp set from Stampibilities to add a little bunch of flowers. I stamped it with Fadeout ink from Inkon3 and did some no line coloring with Copic markers and fussy cut the image.
I arranged everything on the tag base and used liquid adhesive to glue down all the pieces. I stamped a sentiment with Versafine Clair ink using a stamp from the Carta Bella stamp set Let Love Bloom, that read "Life is Beautiful."
I punched a hole at the top of the tag and added 1/8" blue and white ribbon. I created a little reinforcement for the hole using the same patterned paper as well.
For the final step, I used white liquid pearls to add some extra embellishments.
I had a lot of fun creating this tag and definitely took a step past my normal coloring abilities, which I think turned out pretty good. 😊
