A Springtime Cup of Tea...or Two!

Once again a challenge I wanted to make a card for has the theme "Tea for Two" and I really wanted to use the adorable House Mouse stamp I have called "Feeling Rosey" with Maxwell sitting IN a cup of tea. But since its tea for TWO I thought I'd try doing a reverse stamp. I was surprised how well it worked! I stamped the image on my rubber mat for embossing in my Cuttlebug, then laid my paper on it and pressed evenly. I colored them both using Promarkers, Spectrum Noir markers and a few colored pencils, overlapped the reverse one so you can't see the tea bag tag which printed backwards, of course! So here it is:

The yellow rhinestones don't show up well in the photo but do catch the light nicely when held in your hand or propped for display.
