This week our theme is “Have a Latte Day!” and we would like you to create a card or a project that has something to do with a hot drink. It doesn’t have to be coffee. Tea or hot cocoa, would be perfect too. Your options are endless! Be creative! Oh…and don’t forget to stamp! After all, we don’t call this STAMPtacular for nothing! We are sponsored this week by both The Paper Shelter who are offering a $10 gift certificate and by TeddyBo who are giving away three hot drinks related digis to our lucky winner.
I opted to use this adorable Tea for Two image (which I think is number 006) and I challenged myself in more ways than one: Firstly inspired by Alex a dear friend and oh so talented crafter who made me a teapot gift a couple of years ago (see photo below), I decided to follow her design and then I was really constrained by the size of the tea pot when I went to print my image which is only 8 cm (about 3 inches) wide and it was soooo tiny to colour! Even the lovely Copics I used felt like fat white-board markers in my hand trying to get into the teeny corners of the image. I used an EK success bracket punch to cut out my image and as I made the box to hold a gift for hubby I have used no embellishment.
I found a quote on-line by George Gissings and used it on the back of my pot.
And I just wanted to share the delightful Tea Pot made by Alex that inspired me: Isn't it adorable. I would never have come up with my version had it not been for her!
And now for my news...DRUM ROLL PLEASE......
I am going to be the Guest Designer for October for Mo's Digital Pencil!!! And I'm over the moon with excitement!!!!
