Cup of tea anyone???

Last night on Crafters Anonymous's online class we had a guest tutor - Tania Cordie, and she came up with this great project! It almost looks real doesn't it! lol The class was only for the cup so I added the the saucer myself to finish it off! I stamp the image in with Rose Red and coloured the leaves with two shades of green markers and the flower with the two lightest pink markers. The gold is actually the brushed gold card stock.
But one of the types of china/pottery I like is Clarise Cliff (too much Antique Roadshow perhaps! LOL) and so I had to have a go at making a Claris Cliff inspired cup! lol All coloured in with markers - just like colouring in as a kid! lol
now I need to make a nice cup of herbal tea with honey to help ease my sore throat - my beloved son felt he should share his cold with me - bless him!


  1. This is gorgeous Julia! Hope your throat feels better soon, especially with our fun weekend ahead.

  2. perhaps you could coat it with crystal effects & see if it leaks :)

  3. in a word.... WOW!!!! what a beautiful cup & saucer.... If ya wanna mail it to me, my address is: oh wait, I'll bet ya don't....lol. just gorgeous....

    I hope you feel better soon. Amazing how children love to share those icky germs.

    Thanks for sharing your latest project

  4. These are seriously cute Julia. I particularly adore the Clarice Cliff inspired design - well done.
