Afternoon Tea

Ah to put your feet up in the afternoon when work's all done and enjoy a nice cup of tea, and a cake! The theme this week on Lili's Little Fairies is, afternoon tea and the sponsor is Nitwits. We are very sorry that we missed last week's challenge, our poor Mummy Fairy has been very ill and we are all a little lost without her.

I've used the LOTV 'time for a cuppa' stamp, coloured with Copics and edged both the image, mats and papers with Pumice Stone DI. In addition to my usual Copic skin tone colours I've used E71, 74 & 77 for the touches of brown; E50, 51 & 53 for the creams; V01, 12 & 15 for the violet pink touches, and R81, 83 & RV32 for the pinks. I've gone over the flowers on her dress, the cherry on top of the cake and the zigzag on the cup with a glaze pen to add a little shine, but it doesn't show up in the picture.

Here's the card. I've added white stitches to the Nitwit freebie magazine papers and dots around the scallop mat, cut diecut elements and finished off with gems and organza ribbon. The lace border die is by Nellie's Choice, the flowers and sprays are all Marianne dies and the butterflies are Joy dies.

The Allsorts challenge is an anything goes theme this week, and the Stamp With Fun challenge is for shapes.


  1. Sorry I've not been by for a while. I have been out of the country since Monday. I have had a peak at what I've missed and I'm so glad I did - they are all lovely. Your LOTVs are so sweet. Love the pink and cream theme of this one. And your LIMs are perfect! Hugs, Lesley
