Greetings to you - it's been a while and I was so glad to get back to my craft table this week! Thank-you for your visit!
Sending my card today to a lovely lady who is poorly at the moment.
When I received a recent prize order from Linda she included some lovely freebies as she customarily does. Amongst these were some diecut cups and saucers from the Sizzix 'Tea-Time' die. I stamped and clear embossed the diecuts with a music script stamp and then gilded them using my Krylon 18 kt gold leafing pen - aren't they fit for a regal afternoon tea! Then watered down some 'Tea Dye' DI and rubbed onto the two little teabags. Stamped these with a script stamp using DI 'Victorian Velvet'. Affixed to the cups with May Arts jute string and decorated with roses and a butterfly on each handle.
I stamped the background base paper (Pion Design) with a Hero Arts 'butterfly script' stamp - again using DI 'Victorian Velvet'. Speckled the base layer with pink and white frantage. Diecut a tag and stamped and gold embossed the sentiment. Randomly tore the edges of the base paper and tucked little roses and pink lace behind each tear.
Affixed everything to card including a pristine doily layer. Added Melissa Frances pink frou-frou tulle beneath the cups,Nunn Design embellishments in two corners and two heart stick pins in the cups. Completed by adding lots of 'pearls' using a Waco pearl pen.
Warmest wishes to you for a happy weekend.
