Nostalgic Tea

Afternoon all,

I am working with monochromatics this week, it appears. I know the background paper looks white which would preclude it being monochromatic (but it is really a very pale, pale green).

This card is simple but pretty and I so love working with photo art stamps. This particular one had been previously unloved and uninked, but now its plight has been rectified. Hope you like it!

Stamps: Oxford Impressions Afternoon Tea Plate
Inks: Ancient Page Pine Cardstock: Bazzill
Other: Kaiser DP, Kaiser Pearls, Cuttlebug and Cuttlebug Floral Folder
