I used today's sketch from Freshly Made Sketches along with the colours from Stampin' Royalty: So Saffron, More Mustard, Old Olive and Elegant Eggplant.
For the main matt - I rolled More Mustard onto the Striped Embossing Folder with a brayer before putting the Saffron paper in to emboss it; so the Mustard is embedded in the "lower" stripes. The teacup was done on watercolour paper and I had to do two to get one I liked. Fancy teacups always remind me of my Grandma and going to the back lane neighbors for tea when I was a little girl. I do remember proper tea parties too - I just don't recall what the "real" purpose of them were. I do remember being dressed up and offering around the plate of goodies to the guests. Good Times! Good Memories!
And I'm off .... to more good times with Stampin' Friends - hope your day is enjoyable too! Thanks for stopping by!
