2S4Y sketch

I have been eyeing these sketches for a while now and finally got down to participating in this one!  I really liked this simple sketch and here is my version for 2 Sketches 4 You sketch!!
Used some new goodies one this one.....the Library Ledger paper and my Tea for Two stamp sets/dies. 


I ran a small strip of kraft cardstock through with the woodgrain Impression plate so the teapot looks like it's sitting on the table top!  You can't tell at all but I tried to distress the woodgrain strip with tea dye duo but the ink kept blending into the kraft cardstock!  I guess I will try my dark chocolate ink the next time!


Here is the sketch from 2S4Y.....why don't you come play along? 


Have a great day and thanks for visiting!

Oh Amy, this just makes me want to relax. Such a soft, subtle card and your "table" is great. I like to use cognac ink for rubbing accross embossed kraft, it works like a charm.
