Tea Time with Lizzie Anne

Today starts the sneak peaks and previews of Lizzie Anne Designs' newest stamp releases! You can see a peek right here each day, as well as all of the official previews on the Lizzie Anne blog. That will also let you know what other designers have samples to whet your appetite. They'll be available for purchase starting Friday, January 9th.

I hate to say it again, but this is my FAVORITE release so far. And in fact, this is my favorite set. The handles and spouts are separate from the main tea pot, so you can mix and match patterns to be as funky as you like! I went with the polka dotted pot and the plain handles here. I also added the heart of "steam". The image is stamped on water color paper and colored with Stampin' Up! markers and a water brush. The "ground" I sketch in with a Millennium pen. And check out that darling little sentiment, one of many fun additions in this set.

As always, shoot me an email if you have any questions. Thanks for dropping by.
