Yorkshire...

and


While it rains out and I am listening to my Archers podcast it made me think of the cups of tea that were always in James Herriot’s hands.
This lead to the card I made for the challenge and a hop.
I was fortunate enough to have been reading the books when the television show was on and actually met Christopher Timothy who starred as James Herriot!
The card is white card stock.
Using scrap paper I was able to cut multiple masks using my MFT Die-namics “Stitched Basic Edges”.
With these masks, sponge applicator and Distress green inks, I sponged in the hills.
The sheep, houses, trees and shown fields were done with fine line markers.
Next I die cut the tea cup from white card stock using MFT 
Die-namics “Tea Party”.
This I stamped with a verse from MFT Stamps “Cup of Tea” then sponged the cup with Distress inks for a more aged look and applied it with glue dots.
