Watercolor Tea Handmade Tea Invitation

tea card
 I was inspired to create this handmade tea invite after playing with the new Color Burst watercolor pigment powders at my local art group meeting.  We had so much fun playing with this new product!  There are several versions on the market, so look it up.  For this card, I dropped blue and green pigment onto wet white cardstock.

 I added some gemstones, washi tape, twine, and stamped the tea cups by Embossing Arts and script by Hero Arts in black.

 The top of the card was punched with a Martha Stewart punch.  This week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge was "Coffee or Tea?"  Personally, I feel that coffee is a necessity, but tea is a luxury and I am always drawn to handmade tea invitations.

 The card below was made using Dr. PH Martin's liquid watercolor, which I mixed with water and misted over a stencil by Joggles.  The scribble circle is by Claudine Helmuth and the Hello stamp is by BoBunny.

Lastly, a lovely watercolor card my friend Nancy sent me.  Thanks so much, Nancy!  I love it!  I'm linking up to Simon Says Stamp HERE.  Pick me SSS!  ;0

So funny! I didn't even realize whose blog I was looking at and saw that Queen Anne's Lace card and thought ghee, that looks familiar! Duh!
Love what you did with the color burst paper we did at AB club!
