Our 'CYS' aka Craft Your Stash group from SCS has a challenge this month with the theme 'Your Favorite Beverage'.
Well, I drink alot of black tea....all day, every day! So, I went with a tea theme : )
I bought a journal for Bible Journaling a while back, and was able to complete one page in 2/2016..... I had laid out the idea for the cover and primed it, but put it away and never finished it. What a perfect time to get it out!
I painted the cover while in 2016.... so, I tried adding distress inks, but they would not stick. So, painted the background with acrylic paints in a variety of colors. I added a stencil by Ranger DYS 34032 and painted using a shimmery gold paint.
I stamped Sweet and Sassy (SNS His Book) in Black Tuxedo Memento Black ink. (Image on top lt and bottom Rt). They are colored with Copics and/or sponged with ink. I added some shimmer using a Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen.
On the top sentiment panel, I used a hole punch and added multiple fibers and a cross charm. I also added a butterfly charm. I bought the charm when a stamping shop closed about 3-4 years ago and I am in love with this pretty butterfly.

Cards and More- Anything but a Card
Simon Says Stamp Monday- Stencil It
Word Art Wednesday- AG
I decided to also make a card, as I found a package of napkins that I thought would make fun backgrounds....
I used a dollar stamp that is years old for the martini, and the sentiment is Sweet Stamps.
The CYS group can be located here. List mom Barb had the brilliant idea- lets use our stash items- with a monthly theme, I am sure finding no shortage of items to use in my creative space...!!!
Thanks for stopping by!
