A Little Tea Enchantment



Important things first:
To all my Canadian Friends -- Happy Canada Day!

*
There is no reason I can't enjoy the heat with a little
Enchanted Tea.


Tea

Enchanted Lands
Iced tea in a pretty green glass mug
A mini carnation
and I can forget about the heat for awhile!




Iced Tea

I used one of Nancy's textures at 50%.


Tea and Flowers

I erased the texture over the carnation.

A little fun editing on a hot day -- iced tea at hand!


Thank you Nancy!

Thank you to our tea party hosts:

Wishing YOU well, much joy and a wonderful cup of tea!

Hi Snap, boy, I could sure use a glass of that iced tea today. I love your editing on the pictures, too.

Janet said...

That tea looks cool and refreshing on a hot day. I love the editing you did in some of the pics.

Michelle said...

I do like the texture you used!

Vee said...

So pretty and inviting! I am actually going to have to go get a drink because that tea has made me thirsty!

Beth said...

I like iced tea too. My favorite iced tea is made with Lipton's Orange and spice black tea. Recently I also tried my hand at use of an herb in my garden: Lemon Verbena tea. I bruised the leaves and let them soak in the tea for a few hours - for that tea, I used a plain black tea. It was good too. Summer is a great time to relax with a good book and a glass of iced tea!

Deborah said...

Oh what a delightful shot!!! I love the first one. I like the textures too, but the colors and clarity in the unedited shot are like string to a cat's brain for me. HAPPY!

What lovely texture edits. I was awed by the first one, then scrolled to see the next one with the rose more prominent. I think that's my favorite!
