Cupfull of Good Thoughts

This card is a 5x5 inch card for the Joan's Gardens Challenge.  We were to use a doily, stacked up flowers, greenery and floral paper.  The floral paper is from K&Company's exclusive pad of designer paper.  The Cup is the largest stamp in the Heartfelt Creations China Fragments Precut set (that coordinates with Nested Tea Cups die. HCPC 3472).  The stamp is inked in brown Stazon on watercolor paper and colored with Tim Holtz Distress Markers.  This is finished with 3D Crystal Lacquer by Hobby Craft dotted over the edges of the cup and over the flower detail "porcelainizing" it.  The greenery is Cheery Lynn Borders die Holly Flourish (B148).  and the little stacked up flowers are punched. The doily is commercial (from under my cup in a restaurant) and is sponged with Tim Holt's Old Paper Distress ink.  Thinking of you is from a SU set.  The matting is sewing machine stitched with a decorative stitch using Madera rayon shimmery thread.  All these supplies and materials except the Stampin Up stamp are available at Joan's Gardens.
