This is a little project I`ve done for a friends birthday today and BOY! was it a labour of love ! The teapot is a great project but very fiddly to put together, especially for large fingered people like me ! But I think the end result was worth the effort.
The image is a favourite of mine, Tina Wenke from Stampavie - mouse on orange daisy. I`ve had a lot of mileage out of this one ! available from Sir Stampalot.
I`ve coloured with distress inks, the punches are punch-around-the-page set from Martha Stewart - eyelet lace which I`ve had for some time but my ones don`t seem to line up on the regestration marks on the top of the punch so I haven`t used it very often but I`ve figured out how to line it up now and put my own little marks on the punch so it`s easier for me ! MS punches are usually excellent I guess I just got the odd one in a million that was a bit wonky !
The gingham paper is Craft creations, the daisies are from Wild Orchid and the daisy leaf die is BossKut.
I`ve added a bit of Stickles - Diamond and some Glossy accents here and there to highlight.
The teapot is a template from MTME (you can find the link in my side bar)it`s a great project but like I said V fiddly !!
I`ve used Bazzill bling card stock as it`s got a bit more give in it and easier to manipulate without tearing when you bend it. The little charm is from The Ribbon Girl.
I`ve added some choccies to the teapot, mmmmmm Lindor my faves, they very nearly didn`t reach their destination ! LOL !
Thanks for looking in, bye for now and happy crafting xx
