Challenge # 41- "Time for the Queen's Tea"

The theme the next couple of weeks is a broad one.  There are a number of ways you can approach this challenge.  You include all aspects of the theme: the time, the queen and the tea which is what we would like to see you do or you may emphasize two of the three elementss.  The choice is yours, but we must be able to see at least two of the three elements in your creation.

Here are some samples by the Design Team.
My inspiration is a little on the Steampunk side.  I made a tag and tried to use all the elements of the challenge.  First I distressed my designer paper tag and then stamped small teacups and teapots on the background.  Next I used one of the images from Pollycraft, my sponsor for this challenge.  She was colored with Copic markers and then fussy cut.  For the queen element I put a crown as the topping of my tag.   Lastly, is the element of time.  So I attached a dangling watch from the tag.  In order to pull all the elements together is the sentiment "Is the Queen Ready for Her Tea?

I've used some great images from a collage sheet by "Art Tea Life" to make this cute little "Queen Bee" tag. And remember "chamomile and licorice will cure tummy upset"!!!
Afternoon Tea
... with Cherry Kisses. This adorable Lady is having her afternoon tea in the garden filled with Mulberry flowers and perfectly dressed with little pearl necklace and handbag. I coloured the image with Copics. The papers are from Papermania cut with Nestabilities shapes, the tea sentiment stamp is from Artistic Outpost. Ribbon and pearl are from my stash.
Hi you all, Valerie here. For my DT piece I have altered a little clock. I bought a supply of these clocks some time back at the 1€ shop, which is a good price for a working clock. I took off the hands and pulled off the face (sounds rather brutal!), cut a new circle of paper for the face, and stamped it with some Artemio London stamps. The crown has been * bejeweled* with some liquid pearls. I added a red ribbon with red and white roses, put the hands back on, and now it is ticking merrily away on my kitchen wall.
Jenn made a card using "Flo Tea Time" from Pollycraft Studio and "Tea for Two" sentiment from Just Some Lines. DP is from Stampin' Up! Ribbon tags are from my scraps. I spritzed the card with Spun Sugar Smooch Spritz to give it a "tea-stained" look, it doesn't show up as good in the pic unfortunately - you can see it a bit better on the strip of cardstock behind the sentiment. :)
It is time for tea with the queen so this teapot girl stamp by Character Constructions is all dressed up and ready to go.  She is stamped on a piece of scalloped oval card stock which I distressed with Distress Ink (Antique Linen).  I've got decorative striped paper and a little pink flower to finish this card.  With all the fun tea images one can work with from Alice themes to the Royals and so on it should be easy and fun for you to join us this week.  I hope you will!
