Freshly Made Sketches #19 and colourQ challenge #121

Hi there! Another card for two challenges. I used the sketch by Jen Mitchell (which I flipped over) in Freshly Made Sketches and the colors of the colourQ challenge.

As a base for the card, I used a precut card from the Everyday Elegance packet and then I added the embellishments. I painted the kettle and cup with watercolor, but using very little water because I stamped the images with Staz-On on regular Whisper White cardstock, which doesn't absorb a lot of water. Then I applied Crystal Effects on the kettle and the cup for some dimension.

When I looked at the card after I finished it, I noticed that that is a "morning picture" for me because that is what I do every morning: heat up the kettle to prepare an instant coffee or tea after I drop off my daughter at school, lol.
Hope you like it. Enjoy!
