Coffee for a friend

I received some lovely decorative tapes recently, so I made this card as a thank-you:

I used a Tim Holtz stencil and Antique Linen distress ink for the coffee stains. The teacup is cut with Heartfelt Creation dies from the same watercolor paper that I used for the base, and colored it with a Stampin' Up watercolor crayon. I painted the teacup with crackle paint.

FMS #171
This card was inspired by the following Challenges:
CAS-ual Fridays: Watercolor
Country View Crafts' Challenge: Drips & Drops
Freshly Made Sketches #171: Sketch by Rita

I was also very much inspired by the design & techniques used on this card by Michelle Bala.
