Hope you are enjoying your Sunday! Well, although it is normally known as the day of rest my Sunday (and Saturday) has been an intensive flurry of scissoring, tongue-biting, inking, and tweaking. Over at the Shabby Tea Room there is a call for new members for the DT. Seeing as I have a rather long love-affair with all things vintage, I decided to dive in at the deep end and have a go. She who dares wins - and all that.
The inspirational photograph was of a pink and black polka dot tea-set (see end of post). A yummy friendship of styles, colours and pattern - but still a challenge to think of something a bit different and not overly sweet. I was coming out of the girIy phase - but have been lured back in. I actually collect vintage porcelain and cannot resist the charm of a fine bone china cup...so, armed with tea-cupped thoughts and itchy fingers I decided to go for a canvas hanging and set up ye olde shoppe!
I looked around for a great quote about tea and found this one. How true...can't beat a cuppa - as we say here! I printed it out on canvas for added texture and layered up the labels (more snip-work!)
It took a while to get all the elements, composition and spacing right...pink is not as simple as it looks! But I got there - with a wee bit of patience and lots of puffing! Knew what I wanted - but had to find the right road.
Enough chit-chat as I must get this post up in time - Blogger does like to be the boss when it comes to arranging my photos...know what I mean?
I am also entering enter it into a few challenges:
Simon Says Stamp - anything but a card
Fab 'n' Funky - textures
Paper Sundaes - Lace, pink and distressing
The Three Muses - a quotation
Our Creative Corner - Cut it out
Pals Paper Arts - Vintage
But for now, I just hope you can enjoy a little silver spoon and a touch of pink ambience!
See you soon,
