Adventure now or tea first ?

Nikki here, sharing some inspiration for this months Coffee Fiends challenge ... But I am a tea drinker, I don't really drink coffee ! Did I just hear you gasp ? LOL. But fear not .. I still get my caffeine fix :)

The inspiration for the April challenge includes : 

caffeinecoffeeteatea timewarm drinks, hyper, hype, cups, recycle, fancy, stainspillcoffee ringsdripsdropssplatters, vintage, cardboard, corrugated,tanbrownblack, dark, roasted, light, vapor, and last of all.. date time with friends.

Here is my make : 

As my focal point I used this dapper gentleman, Man with teacup 18484. Isn't he great?

I stamped and colored him with alcohol markers and fussy cut him. The rather delicate pink bone china tea cup is embossed with clear embossing powder. I also used the tail from the Fantasy Bird 17852 to make the vapor/steam from his cuppa. Its stamped onto velum, embossed and fussy cut.

The background is sponged with tea dye distress ink and the corrugated cardboard is actually a recycled Starbucks cup sleeve :) I sponged it lightly with distress ink and added black and white splatters of acrylic paint. I also made the tea bag tag, instead of using ribbon.

This is such a fun quote from Peter Pan, and fitted perfectly with this gentleman I think. He looks like hes asking just this sort of question, or perhaps making a sarcastic remark ? LOL

Here is a close up :
