For this card I used a die cut cup and saucer (I received free in an order from the Funkie Junkie Boutique, Linda includes a little envelope of free things in every order) it's Tim Holtz Tea Time die. (is 'tea' a swear word here??! well, my cup has espresso in it! ) The sentiment is from Coffee Set by Waltzingmouse. I used papers with fall colors to fit the fall theme, as well as gold, orange and brown on the cup and saucer.
I used a cool technique on my cup and saucer called Faux Gilded Technique that Wendy Vecchi created - you can see it on this You Tube video. I rubbed Wendy's Metallic Gold Embossing paste lightly over the die cut cup and saucer - not covering it entirely. Then I sponged over both pieces with Wendy's Archival Orange Blossom Ink and then Tree Branch Ink. It's shiny IRL but it doesn't show in the pic.
