a Cup of indigo

The color challenge this month at So Scrappy  is indigo. I discussed the color and it's challenges to me here in the Indigo Flamingo's post.
This week it's dishes.
 I've been doing pp dishes in each color.
I pulled the scraps to the left, and fussy cut them for this cup.
I love it!
Now for something to go in the cup...


stars.

Stars in the cup... or star coffee, so strong it will leave a twinkle in your eyes!

Star tea... make a wish while drinking it, then read your tea leaves for your future...

How about a little snack. Better be really little as these plates are small...



So, we have a snack and something to drink.

What about a bowl of lemons, or fruit, or maybe candy??







When I saw this print in the scrap bin, it just looked like a little China bowl.
The pattern was called a latte cup, but it looks like a bowl to me.

The two lighter shades of blue for the inside, were not quite large enough, but I liked the tint and shading so I pieced them together to make them large enough. Proving no scrap is too small for me.

I am happy with this month's dishes

  11. These are so cute! But I'm still curious as to what plan you have for all the different colored dishes. I'd say that is a coffee pot because of the shape. Love the fussy cut cup!!
