Taylored Expressions March Blog Hop
Good morning! I'm so excited to participate in Taylored Expressions March Blog Hop! I did not use the optional sketch because I already knew what I wanted to do. I LOVE the stamp set: CreativiTEA. I knew I wanted to set the table with a table cloth and have a pretty country wallpaper behind it.
I embossed the tea kettle, tea cup and sentiment in pink then colored the teacup with copics adding a little shading on the tea kettle as well. I distressed them with Tim Holtz antique linen and a tiny bit of tea dye. The paper on the lower portion of the card was so dark that if I cut the doily in half, you could see the base color behind it - so I chose to just fold it in half and adhere it that way. I added some flowers from Prima including the toole one. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the foliage and added some bling.
Here's a close-up of the tea kettle and tea cup. Don't you just love the bling for the steam?
I have to admit that I love layers! Here's an angle showing the 3-D.
One last photo with that includes some of the inside of the card. I stamped the rose from the same stamp set and added a little corner piece.
Thank you so much for stopping by! I appreciate your visit and hope you enjoyed your stay. As always I appreciate every comment!
