It's starting to get chillier here at night, an although I drink hot green tea every morning, the cooler temps make me want a cup of hot tea at night. So last night, as I put on the kettle, I was reminded that I had one more card from CHA this year, that I had made for Ranger, that I hadn't blogged yet. Sorry. I totally forgot, and this is the last one from the event, but one that I loved because I love old china. Now grab a hot cup and enjoy!
|I love that old Floral Tattoo Stamp Set from Tim and Stamper's Anonymous, and I knew it would make the best design for a look a like old Wedgwood pattern, but since it's a wedge shape I couldn't figure out how to stamp it, so I cut the stamp. INSERT GASP! It's okay to cut a stamp...you can still stamp the whole design once it's on a stamping block. So I die cut the Tea Time die from Sizzix with Specialty Stamping Paper...my fav...and stamped with Cobalt Archival Ink. I had to use lots of masking papers, as you can see, to finally get the look I wanted.|
|I gave the edges a distress look with the help of an Antique Linen Distress Marker and Mini Ink Pad. It smudges beautifully on SSP. If the Distress Collage Medium in Crazing was out then, I would have slathered it on too...next time!|
|I die cut the Nostalgic Coredinations with the Mixed Media Thinlet, sanded, and inked it over with Wendy's Potting Soil, and mounted it on a Metallic Coredinations card. I LOVE the Metallic papers! Then I stitched around.|
|Once the Royal Blue was dry, I added Brass Liquid Pearls to the rims.|
Thank you so very much for looking and commenting! I appreciate all of you, and wish we could all go to tea together...Oh how I love to go to high teas! Until next time...
I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
