I've had this ready since last Thursday, but decided to save it for T time. Craft Barn's latest challenge is T, and since there was no twist (like a dreaded dragonfly), it was an easy choice for me.
I got a little carried away with the stamping, but it's no secret I am not very good at this sort of task. All of the stamps were red rubber and all were unmounted
except my little cup with the rose center. Now you see why I prefer wood mounted or silicone stamps?
Above is the definition of tea which is also one of the Craft Barn challenge requirements. I confess that a few of my stamps were "harmed" (certainly not charmed) during the commission of this assignment.
The oriental teapot was one I picked up in a grab bag at my local craft store, and all the other UM rubber was on a sheet of red rubber from a gift I won from Toodles and Binks. Although I found their blog, it looks like Kay hasn't posted for over three years. So I have no idea if they still sell their rubber stamps or not.
As an aside, I was able to visit everyone who linked to the Craft Barn's last challenge. I plan to visit you this fortnight, too.
If you came from the Craft Barn and would like to join our little T Stands For Tuesday group, we invite you to do so, but please be aware your linked post MUST include some type of drink. You may show a glass of water, mug of coffee, cup of tea, glass of buttermilk, bottle of wine, you get the picture. But don't feel you have to limit it to a physical drink. You could share the drink in a postcard, movie, book you are reading, garden plant, or a sketch, scrapbook page, painting, or collage made in your journal or altered book. Your spread could be traditional as mine was today, hybrid, or completely digital. The choice is yours.
Bleubeard wants to remind you that your pictures/photos/scans may be taken anytime, and your post can be anytime, even backlinked. He also wants you to please link your direct post, not your blog in general. After you link, Bleubeard, the T gang, and I will be by to visit.
Thanks for your visit, whether you are here from the Craft Barn challenge, T Stands for Tuesday, or just because you like our company.
