Ok calm is resumed, after burning my toast twice and numerous
cups of my beloved T..............
Ooh I do love a nice cup of Rosie Lea - Tea!! I am definitely a
teapot. I don't think there is anything better than a nice cup
of tea especially when it's shared with friends and of course a
nice cream cake!!! mmm...So I decided to give this little stamp
an airing yesterday.............when I saw this beautiful stamp
from Leanne Ellis it took me back to my mum's kitchen where
we would sit and have numerous cups of tea putting the world
to rights! My mum used to love her tea too, so I thought I
would make this stamp into a wall hanging plaque for my kitchen!
The papers I have used are from K & Co and the decoupage
flowers are from a 12 x 12 sheet of making memories, vintage
rose crackle which is quite old! To colour the image I have used
my water colour palette. The border stamp around the outside is
from a clear set of Laura Ashley Connemara (this set is full of
beautiful filigree shapes). The green paper is punched with my
Fiskars border punch and I have also punched the heart shape.
For the "I Love Tea" sentiment I have used my Hero Arts
alphabet and the heart stamp is from Funstamps, I have also
placed three little pink rhinestones in the top right corner.
Ribbons and lace from stash. Once complete I mounted it onto
a thick piece of card.
were in place..I used this old emery board to file down the
rough edges of the thick card, I also use it for distressing
my papers, it is so handy! I hope you like it, TFL Sue xx
