Coffee with a Friend - For Fun DT Card

This week's challenge at For Fun Challenges is a sketch. I just picked up this set from Flourishes and thought that the teacup was perfect for this layout. It's coloured in Copics. I just love this set and can't wait to play with it some more. The colours are a little off in my picture. The background is supposed to be Certainly Celery and the matting behind the teacup is Not Quite Navy, not black. I didn't have a thick enough ribbon to balance the top so I used a strip of Brocade Blue under my white ribbon. The centre of the prisma flower is a clear bead that comes in a huge bag at Michael's. I then covered it in nail polish. I have never had much luck colouring with my copics but have found nail polish to be the bomb! I'm the only person I know that buys strange colours of polish when she never wears it herself.

I really do hope you'll join us this week at For Fun Challenges. I always love to see other people's ideas and creations.
