It's Panda Time for Tea!

Greetings! It's Kathi here. On Tuesday I told you that I was confused about whether to use Time for Tea Designs products or to create a tea-themed project, so I made both. Well I'm back today with a tea-themed tag!

My first step was to stamp the To Go Cup from the Coffee and Tea To Go Unmounted Red Rubber Stamp Set by Katzelkraft with Memento ink onto white cardstock. Using a stamping platform, I positioned one of the adorable pandas from the Pandamonium Party Clear Stamp Set onto the cup, then stamped him with Memento ink. I fussy-cut the cup, then colored the entire image with Copic markers, and edged it with a dark marker. The cup was set aside while I worked on the tag.

The tag, overlay, and the bit that covers the tag's aperture were die-cut from mixed media cardstock. 

Graphite Elements Ink was applied to my 2" Speedball Brayer. Some ink was rolled off, then the remaining ink was applied to the 5" X 7" Gel Press . The tag base was placed onto the Gel Press, then a print was pulled, and both the Gel Press and brayer were cleaned. I repeated this step with Blue Lagoon, then more lightly with Merlot, and Paprika Elements Inks.

I repeated the above process with the stitched tag overlay to build up some color, then placed the Pattern 4 Stencil by Pronty Crafts onto the Gel Press, brayered Blue Lagoon over the stencil, placed the tag overlay onto the Gel Press, and pulled a print. Both the tag and the overlay were heat set to ensure that they were dry.

The tag overlay was placed onto a stamping platform, the sentiment from the Coffee and Tea To Go Unmounted Red Rubber Stamp Set was positioned as shown, and the platform's lid was lifted. A Post-It Note was used to cover the words "You, Me, &", the stamp was inked with Onyx Black VersaFine Ink by Tsukineko, and the sentiment was stamped.

A fine-tipped black pen was used to ink the stitch patterns on the tag overlay, then Clock themed Washi tape was applied to the bottom of it. The overlay was adhered to the tag, the Panda Tea-To-Go Cup was adhered, a vellum tea vapor die-cut was adhered, and the tag topper was adhered. Ribbon was threaded through the tag's opening to finish it all up.
