KLM Tall Tea Set

Today I am featuring this wonderful KLM Designs Tall Tea Set image!

I have been drinking hot tea a lot this winter - it's a refreshing treat on a cold winter day - so I was immediately drawn to this tea set when I first saw it. I colored it with my Copic markers and thought it was warm and inviting.

Then I started creating my card and decided I wanted a little bit different look to the image. Not a problem, even with digitals.

I cut the tea pot into a block and then cropped/cut the two mugs separately so they could be overlapped and popped up off of the teapot. I love the dimension this created to my card.

You may notice that the table-line is extended on the altered version. I did that with my Copic multi-liner pen. It was not at all difficult.

I'm including two more pictures that show both of the colored images so you can see what a difference this one small touch made in the overall look.

It is fun to think outside the box when using digitals.

The button I used is a recycled one - it came off of a worn out piece of clothing - so this card fits this week's Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge. KLM is the challenge sponsor this week and is offering a prize of 3 digital images.

Oh, and one more thing... that gorgeous flower? I airbrushed it with two colors at the Copic Certification class I took on Saturday. Isn't it pretty?

Hey J!
Way to show off the versatility of this set by cutting out the mugs! I love the look of the teapot - it's a great design and a bit diff. than anything else I've seen. Such a great, sunny card!
