Well I think I am back. I think my mojo got tossed in my re-org, there were no images, no ideas, wow, scary. But I woke up yesterday and this was floating around in my head and I went with it.
The background paper is from my scraps and I have no idea who did this one. I did a multiple bow with a charm, the charm was computer generated. The pocket was done with design studio and cannot remember the cartridge for the embellishment it was also in my scraps. The stitching was done with a 3ply thread that I have had for ages but could not find a sewing machine needle that it would fit through, finally found one at Wal-Mart. The stamped image is from All Night Media by Mary Engelbrett. I did a fun technique with the stamp, you stamp the image with a light gray or beige ink, then with a thin black permanent ink pen draw around the image then color in with Copic inks. Photo corners on this are QK and metal. I love the tea bag from "Stash" it is Mango-Coconut and thought it perfect for this card pocket.
Inside it says, "It is not just tea but the ritual, the chime of the microwave that deems the ritual begin. The dunking of the tea bag and then walking away as it steeps. For a true ritual there must be a china tea cup so that your mouth feels the warmth gently before you experience the earthy fragrance entwined with coconut and mango. It is the first sip that rewards you with pictures of Monet women in floppy hats and swirling dresses, the gentle waves lapping at the shore of a tropical island. It is the ritual." Happy Saturday, Hugs
