WMS 2nd Birthday - Tea Party!

Waltzingmouse Stamps turns 2 and in celebration they are having a tea party!  We are to make a tea bag, tea pot or pastry themed projects - anything that you would find at a tea party!  Claire provided a FREE tea bag template which I printed and put together for this fun contest!

I used several Waltzingmouse stamps.  The flower is the smaller of two in Roses in Bloom.  I also used Very Vintage Labels No 5.  For the background I used Musical Backgrounds.  Enjoy the rest of the photos!  Lots of details in this project.

I even stamped the back of the tea bag.  I punched a hole in the top and tied it together with string so that I can later open it and fill it with goodies.  (I'm not a tea drinker so I don't keep it on hand... but I know quite a few ladies who would love a few chocolates in a fun container!)

oooooh, shiny!  I used a glitter pen in the center of the flower.  I also used copics to color and shade the rose which was stamped onto designer paper.  I stamped it again and layered the rose.

Hand-dyed seambinding tied in a bow with a light pink pears half attached.  It's the same color as the pearl flourishes around the rose.

I used chocolate chip ink for the decorative stamp on the top and the bottom of the tea bag.

I'm also entering this project in Papertake Weekly:  Bloom and Grow
and the Shabby Tea Room:  monochromatic
