Pile It On! Challenge - Beverages

We have another fun Pile It On! Challenge starting today, and the theme this month is:


Our sponsor for this challenge is Bugaboo Stamps:

Prize - 4 Digi Stamps of the Winner's Choice!

I used a cute Crafter's Companion image from the 'Moonbeam Meadow' collection called 'Time for Tea', that I found in a charity shop recently. I coloured it using watercolour pencils, then added a sentiment (from the 'Big Messages' set by Paula Pascual. I paired it with papers from the 'Happy Day' pad by My Mind's Eye...I distressed the edges a little, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen.

Here are the challenges I piled on:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Pile It On! Challenge.
