This cup is a bonus digital image from Sandi Sample, very pretty. The card is for the August CDAC Progressive Challenge. I used denim Ranger distress ink with a stipple brush for the background of the cup and colored the flowers with copics and added some trim with a silver paint pen. The background paper and sentiment are from Paper Boutique, a scrapbook kit.
When we got married, they used to give the bride a teacup shower before she was married. Now we don't use these cups too often, because the dishwasher takes the silver or gold off the edges. Now most of my friends prefer to use a mug whether it is for tea or coffee. Now I have china mugs for tea.
