Tea Cups and Roses
Hi, today I have a little paper Tea Cup to share with you. This project was inspired by the new challenge over at Try it on Tuesday. I had lot of trouble with taking the photo for this and I am sorry to say this was the best I could achieve. My camera doesn't seem to like glitter glue for some reason.
For the Cup and Saucer I used my Silhouette to cut out the shapes and the paper layers, which are from K and Company. I edged the paper pieces with 'Brushed Corduroy' Distress Ink and glued in place. I then added a coat of Artiste Glitter Varnish over the top to add a sheen and make it feel more like porcelain than paper.
The roses I made by hand using some Artista Superlight Clay and coloured them with some decorating chalks in pink and yellow. I then added some Stickles glitter glue and allowed them to dry.
The leaves were made by stamping an old wood mounted stamp that I have had for a while, but it doesn't have any writing on, so I don't know who's company it is from. I stamped the leaves with 'Rich Cocoa' Memento ink and coloured them with 'Peeled Paint' Distress Ink. I then cut them out and glued them to the back of the clay roses, before attaching them around the Cup.
I finished my Tea Cup with a sentiment form Hobby Art's 'Birthday Collection' stamp set and filled the cup with some Tea Bags.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenge: Try it on Tuesday- Tea Cups
I hope you like my Cup and thanks for taking the time to visit.
