Here's the fabulous sketch Becky has for us:
And here's my card using the sketch:
I'm using a newer Flourishes set called Let's Have Tea. This tea pot is actually sitting on a tray, but I wanted just the teapot for this card so I stamped it with Memento Rich Cocoa ink on Classic White card stock, colored it with Copic markers, and cut it out.
I was aiming for a vintage/shabby chic sorta look, so I did some distressing, both with a sanding block and with ink. And, I played around a little with some Distress Inks to make the mottled element. I used a shipping tag, cut off the top portion, and sponged several colors of Distress ink on, then spritzed it with water. The colors blended together and I like the look. It's like your own very subtle patterned paper--I'll be doing more of this. The rest is pretty simple: some lace, some buttons, and some sewing. The sentiment is from Tag Lines--stamped also with Memento rich Cocoa ink.
