Cozying up with Some Hot Tea

January always makes me want to watch the stunning snowy scenery outside from my favorite vantage point, my armchair with a hot cup of tea in hand!

This month, Gingersnap Creations will be focusing on "hot techniques" and using hot beverages as their theme of the month! How fun!

I made this card to get into the mood. It uses a Technique Junkies technique called Marker Wash. I got halfway through and decided to stop there, not re-coloring the images after I had washed them out as I really liked the effect as is.

I also had a fabulous quote from Serendipity to add but decided it would do better on the inside of the I actually finished the inside of a card...must be the New Year going to my head!
