A cup of tea, a prayer or two...

A cup of tea, a prayer or two. Special moments shared with you! That is the sentiment of this darling Inky Antics stamp. I've watercolored the image with Tombow markers and a wet paint brush. One thing "new" that I used on this, and only just a teenie bit, is the sparkles on the bows in the girls' hair. It is a new-to-me type of stickles glitter called Glitz Stickles. The Glitz are even sparklier than regular and the colors are really rich. Of course in a photo, you don't get the full effect of the sparkle but trust me, they are!

I am going to attach a special tea inside this card and send it off to a friend who I think just might enjoy a cup of tea. We may not get to share it together but this is the next best way, don't you think?
