Tuesday Trigger from Moxie Fab World


This is the gorgeous image that Kath chose this week for her Tuesday Trigger challenge.  If you know me, you know that I take things literally, so here is my take on it. 

 

I substituted a coffee mug because that is usually one of the first things I grab when I bring in a few flowers from the garden, but otherwise I followed the picture pretty closely, using the same colors.  I needed a small sentiment, since the mug with the flowers took up a good part of the space, and decided to use this one from PTI, and added some faint script in the background to follow through.  The background was distressed using brown and a bit of orange inks

Supplies: My Time Made Easy "A Spot of Tea" stamp (teacup), Hero Arts CG108 Special Moments (rose and leaves), LP123 Artistic Windows (script), PTI Vintage Picnic Sentiments, 2 pink, cream, and green cardstocks, papers from K&Co. Designer Mat Pads, Bailey and Hopscotch Girl, Versafine onyx black ink, Palette Burnt Umber, spiced marmalade distress inks, rose petals from a silk flower
