It’s Summertime and the days may be longer, but they sure do fly by! We have another new sketch for you over at Freshly Made Sketches. Our hostess this week, the ever-clever and oh-so-talented Linda Callahan, has a fun sketch for us. Take a look:
I have been drawn to the Tea Room suite lately. In fact, this was the first suite to go on my wish list when I first saw the new catalog. And I don’t even drink tea. And I can’t stand coffee. I know… I know… Most of you can’t understand that and probably think there’s something wrong with me. ha!
I thought the cute little teacups would work perfectly for the circle elements of the sketch, so that’s where I started. I stamped them on watercolor paper and colored them with an aquapainter and ink pads. I used a color scheme of Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight/Crushed Curry, and Coastal Cabana.
The cups were cut out with the coordinating framelits. I love how the tea cup framelit cuts out the handle as well.
I embossed the background with the new Subtle embossing folder. I love the bit of linen-like texture this adds.
The little flourish was stamped under the sentiment and embossed with copper embossing powder. A strip of Tea Room dsp was added along the side, and some pearls were added as embellishments.
We hope you’ll join us and create your own card using the sketch. We love to see your work as we browse the gallery and visit your blog. Meanwhile, be sure to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for your inspiration.
Enjoy your Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!

I know quite a few people who don’t drink hot drinks at all – not something I can be accused of, but you’re definitely not alone! And you’ve created a beautiful card with so many wonderful details! Just gorgeous!
