Serendipity Stamps Challenge




Oh happy days...The weekend is here! It is once again time for a Serendipity Challenge and I hope I have lived up to the expectations of this challenge. Here is the deets...




I have used an image from Serendipity Stamps called "Tea Service." Love the old vintage look of this stamp. I colored with both Prisma Color Pencils and Gamsol and my Copic Markers. I added a little bling to the tops of the tea cups and around the image. The fern has been cut out with Spellbinders "Foliage." I also used Papertrey Ink's wood grain impression plate for the background.


This lopsided way of posting is driving me nuts...meaning, blogger has it's own way of putting paragraphs where it wants to. I do not have the time to change it.


I hope you like this rendition of the challenge. I love playing along with Serendipity and their images, which have become a favorite of mine. I have to go to work in the morning and again on Saturday, so I knew I would not have time this weekend to post.


I hope all of you have a very happy and safe weekend and thank you for stopping by to visit!

Love the darling tea service and your fresh, cool but summery colors. Looking at this takes the heat right out of the day. Your fern also adds to the shady coolness of your card. It's a great take on the challenge! I'll be thinking of you later when I'm sipping tea at the bistro table out back. Have a wonderful weekend!
