Enjoy tea/coffee @ CD Sunday challenge

When I saw the challenge on CD Sunday was "enjoy tea/coffee" I knew I wanted to use this stamp but needed to combine it with something from a CDrom.

I used the MCS Deco follies cdrom for the background and imposed one of the frames from the same cdrom over the top using MCS - hoping my stamp would fit in the centre! It did but I am not sure it works as well as I hoped. To begin with the ladies looked like they had sleeve tattoos! very on trend I know but I decided to use a TH white distress pen to cover them up and then go over with a tea rose promarker, using promarkers to colour the rest of the image too. I left the legs as I thought they didn't look too bad. Finally a stamped sentiment along the bottom of the base card.

It's That Stamp again! You and I both seem to have a love hate relationship with it. I think it looks great here - the lacy pattern appears to be superimposed on the ladies as if you were snooping on them through lace curtains of the house across the road!

Lovely card, I like the way the stamp on the background gives the impression you are looking at them through a window with net curtains, it's very now card with a very different look to Art Deco
I like it.

I LOVE the image over the patterned paper, it looks wonderful.

No lace curtain effect here! To me the frame suggests a window and the pattern makes me think of a stained glass window. Either way it's a lovely card and perfect for the CD Sunday theme.

Great idea to create a fancy border around the image. Think I should do this more often. Love the stamped image too. An interesting creation. Thank you for sharing it with us at CD Sunday. Wynn DT
