Happy Friday! Bring on the weekend! I am going to hang out with my friend, Sharon tomorrow. We are going to a morning card making event. And, then we will hunt out some garage sales where I will be looking for items to alter. And, maybe a few good books. Sounds fun, doesn't it??!!
Today, I have two really fun projects; a card and a tag using stamps from Character Construction: Mad Tea Party #7. I went a bit mad myself with my projects. And, I certainly did not spare the fibers. Here is the card.
I stamped the Tea Pot lady and the pots with Oregano Adirondack ink on white CS. The images were colored with Watercolor Crayons. Now this part is very technical.... I blended the crayons with my finger. LOL. I suppose I could have used a Fantastix or something, but I did not want to use any water because I used a dye ink to stamp. I dry embossed the piece and swiped it with Shabby Shutter Distress ink.
As I said, I went a bit mad with all the fibers and added a wide ribbon and lots of rick rack. The inside is fairly sane and has plenty of room for a nice note.
Now on to the Tag. I started with a dark brown tag and sprayed with iridescent Glimmer Mist. I added some Vintage Bronze enamel powder (from Piccolo) on one edge and the bottom. The images are stamped with Oregano ink on white CS and cut out.
Add the Tea Pot Lady to the tag and apply a coat of Glastique Finishing Glaze. Love this effect.
Apply some Crushed Olive Distress Ink and Tempting Turqouoise ink (Stampin' Up) ink to the cups and pots. Add them with dimensional squares. I added fabric puffs on the sides.
The puffs are really easy to make. If you have made yo-yos, you know how to make these puffs. Cut a circle from fabric. Hand sew gathering stitches around the edge and pull tight. That's it. "Sew" easy. LOL.
Add the ribbon at the top.
And, how about a few super fun Challenges!!
