Tim Holtz tag of April: mosaic cups

So I haven't been around for the 
tags much this year...so many other projects to do,
but I did not want to muss out on the
April tag(maybe doing the others
another time) For all the technique
explanations please go and see all the
details on the blog of

This month I just love the mosaic technique
and from my birthday money I bought one
of these mosaic kits with all the essentials to
do the technique. It works perfect!

Although I loved Tim's bird too,I decided
the cups were also great for this technique
and why not a tea theme this time
(yes, I do drink tea too!)

This is the background I made for the tag
(using the original technique with stamping
with acrylic paint that works as a resist).
The splatter and the coffee ring are 
Tim Holtz stamps too. The are from set

mini muse CMS063 (coffee rings)
bitty grunge CMS089 (splatter)

I love the arrow with the tea bag, it looks so cute!
I think there are many moments people collect over 
a cup of tea or coffee,don't you?!

And here are the cups. The are cut with the Sizzix 
Tea Time die. I colored the groud with 
faded jeans distress ink to give the cups a blue 
background.

Thank you for looking!
Have a creative day!
