JFF Tea Card Challenge

Over at JFF this week the challenge is tea cards now these came from packets of tea in bygone days, which I do remember (blush). They had all sorts of different themes such as wildlife or cars and so forth all were highly collectble. I do have vague memories of collecting them. What a fantastic idea (this was Neet's idea) very different. I Had various ideas but was restrained to using what I have available. Sometimes the challenge is using what you have in your stash rather the buying something special. Any I used these lovely owls. I inked the background with memento summer blue skies and back stamped trees in London fog. I wanted the midnight foggy look so I added some bamboo at the bottom and tangerine at the top. Then a swoosh of glitter glaze. and eventually the owls. I used water colour pencils to add a bit to the owls. The whole thing is mounted on white card then orange cordinations which has been run through an embossing folder and sanded. Finished it off with string for that rustic look. Enjoy the BH whatever the weather. I dare not complain about the rain LOL. XOXO. Oh I have visited the other blogs and tried to leave comments but blogger is planning silly Bs again I am unable to leave any comments. Welcome to Florence so glad to see you as a guest. Great tea cards from the other participants. XOXO.

Blogger keeps losing my followers and has me in a right tizzy now and then. Hopefully it will settle down and we can both relax LOL.
Love your tea cards and so glad you enjoyed doing them. I like London Fog(ink pad)as it gives that lovely muted look which you have achieved on your tea cards. The way you have mounted them on a card is great and the use of the two sizes of owls is inspirational.
Thanks for joining us at JFF - Hugs, Neet x
