Wee little cups

Hello dear bloggers,

Here is a card that I have put together for CAS Colours & Sketches this week. 
The background has been made with watercolour brush markers from Camlin and I think I have used smoosh technique here. 

I have used 300 gms watercolour paper and propped it with corrugated packaging material as suggested by dear Maxine of Thank you for always suggesting and helping come out with such brilliant solutions. 

The beige teacups were actually Starbucks cups lying around for years while the white one has been die cut using regular cardstock. I have used a Kaiser craft teacup die to die cut the cups.

The sentiment has been handwritten with a Zebra pen. I followed my childhood rule of first writing with a pencil and then going over with a pen. It worked much better than using a pen right on. 

I will enter this card in:

Happy cardmaking,
