My cup of tea

Did you see this picture on my facebook wall? Mug and somewhere to put the tea bag from Poundland - I couldn't resist buying these:

One layer Wednesday 93 challenge is asking us to make a card based on something 'in the kitchen'. I had a little 'light bulb' moment and thought about making a card with a cup of tea, so I've used a Kanban stamp, simply inked with memento tuxedo black, with just the tea coloured with a copic. With the addition of the sentiment and the steam, both from the Kanban 'coffee shop' set, the card was finished.

I have to admit though that this was my third attempt because I got black marks in wrong places on the first and second attempts - however, the cards won't be wasted because I can fully cover with patterned papers.

Very difficult to get a photo of the white card, especially as it's a rainy day here.
