Gingersnap Chestnut Theme challenge - Hot Beverages

The theme for Gingersnap Creations Chestnut challenge this month is Hot Beverages and anyone who knows me knows my favorite is TEA.
It's hard to see in this scan but the card is Kraft just like what the image is stamped on with a white layer.  For whatever reason the scan won't pick it up or I just haven't figured out how to do it correctly with this new fangled scanner.
Back to the card......I stamped Faerie Song Art Stamps ~ Fantasy Themed Images  Tea Faerie with Ranger Ink Archival Coffee ink on the kraft cardstock then just highlighted parts of the image with Prisma white color pencil.  I really like this effect and thought this technique just fit right in with the tea......doesn't it just warm you right up in this frigid cold weather here in Connecticut!
