The wonderful folks at www.heart2heartchallenges.blogspot.com have a sketch challenge this week. Check it out and all the beautiful work posted. Here's my slightly altered take on the sketch.
I started with a CTMH Gypsy Cardstock base. For the circle feature, I traced a circle on the center of the card and used Liquid Glass from CTMH to glue down a circle of Baker's Twine (not sure of mfg.) I then used CTMH ink in Gypsy and Sunshine Yellow to random stamp on a strip of White Daisy Cardstock. The flower stamps are from the CTMH stamp set Tea Time. The 2nd strip of paper is the backside of a patterned paper from CTMH's Sophia paper pack. I again used Gypsy Ink and Tea Time stamps for the teapot and cup. Both were stamped once on the small piece of cardstock and then re-stamped and cut out, then popped up on the first images with foam adhesive tape. I used a little jewel for the top of the teapot. I also used the flower stamp to random stamp and added the "steam" using Grey Flannel ink. I used a sponge to add a little bit of color to the background behind the cup and pot. The sentiment was stamped on a scalloped circle of Sunshine Yellow Cardstock and then folded over the rectangle. The flower and pearls are from my stash. The card still needed a little sumpin' sumpin' so I "stitched" with my white gel pen and added a sprig of yellow Organza ribbon. Done!
