Time for Tea- and a sketch!

Good morning! It's time for another MyGrafico Challenge! We are working with an adorable set today and we would love to have you play along!




















I am not a coffee drinker but I do enjoy a cup of tea! Nothing fancy - just some Lipton with a little Splenda. And I have always been attracted to teapots - I would have a collection of them, if I had the space to display them. But I will stick to the 2 apple themed ones I currently have in my kitchen (although I am on the lookout for a 3rd).

So we are working with this cutie-pie teapot set from Black Leaf. Here's the sketch:




















And my card:
























I love the vintage-y papers from Graphic 45 and I choose Copic markers to match the colors in the papers. I stuck to the sketch pretty closely and didn't add many embellishments as 1) I thought there was enough going on with the busy papers and 2) I want to tuck a couple of tea bags in the card when I send it and I didn't want to add any more bulk to it.

So are you up to the challenge this week? All you have to do is create something based on the sketch and then link it up at MyGrafico Challenges. And have you joined the MyGrafico ning site yet?? Stop by and check it out - always something new and fun going on and lots of artwork to drool over!

Hope you'll hop around and see what else Team B created with the sketch this week - what a talented group!

I am off to conquer the day (why does my to-do list never seem to get any shorter??) Have a good day!
