Time to enter the Simon Says Wednesday challenge again too! This time it was for cards that are not rectangular or square, and it certainly made me put my thinking cap on. I'd just bought a new set of tea stamps from JoAnn's on special so decided to put them straight to use. I cut the tea cup card on my Silhouette cameo. I then sponged on a background using cosmetic sponges and Distress Inks in Salty Ocean and Picked Raspberry. I spritzed it with water then overstamped with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink and Close to My Heart Geometric Backgrounds stamps. The other papers were also sponged, then torn and applied. The teacup was stamped in Memento black, then coloured with Prismacolour pencils, and accented with Wink of Stella clear and a silver gelly roll pen.

Trying to go outside of my comfort zone again by using some bright colours! The background was created using Heidi Swapp's colour shine sprays in Sweet Cherry, Mustard and Patina through a dots stencil by Studio 490 onto Tim Holtz's watercolour paper and ripped.
The edges were stamped using Finnabairs bubbles stamp with Distress Inks in Mowed Lawn, Wild Honey and Fired Brick. They were also used to stamp the feathers from Stampin' Ups Four Feathers set (discontinued), which I hand cut, including the feather line. The circle behind them is a Sizzix orignals circle #2 die (a single circle, discontinued, but you could use any circle die or a Cricut/Silhouette machine), crumpled, distress with Tim Holtz's distress tool and edged with Distress Ink in Antique Linen
