Bes-Teas by Not 2 Shabby

Hello Everyone!  Today is new digital release day at the Not 2 Shabby Shop and the theme is Boba Tea.  I have to admit, I did not know what Boba (also called Bubble Tea or Pearl Tea) was so I had to look it up.  

"Bubble tea is a tea-based drink that originated in Taiwan in the early 1980s. It most commonly consists of tea accompanied by chewy tapioca balls"

My card features several of the Bubble Teas, all hand colored with alcohol markers and placed on a stenciled background.

I've fussy cut all the bubble teas and popped them on craft foam.  The Sentiment is included in the digital set and the background has been stenciled with the floating dots stencil from Kat Scrappiness.

In addition to stenciling with ink, I've went over the stencil with Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Paste for added sparkle and shine.

Starting Today, the Not 2 Shabby Digital Design Team is hosting an Instagram Hop!  You'll want to Hop along HERE for your chance to win a $25 Gift Voucher to the Not 2 Shabby Shop.

Hope to see you at the Hop and until next time, Happy Crafting!
