H&S Tea Party at Midnight Madness 20
Happy Saturday everyone!!! I hope that this finds you all having a marvelous weekend! We have had a very rainy one so another stay inside weekend for me.
This is the challenging sketch over on Midnight Madness 20 that I used for this card...however I did turn the sketch on its side. If you have not visited this challenge blog, I can assure you that their challenges are alot of fun and the site is filled with ideas and excellent tutorials.
For my card I used Bazzill CS for the base, all matting is PTI Ocean Tides and Hibiscus Burst, and the DP is from the Cosmo Cricket "Jolly By Golly". Ribbon is satin PTI also. I used one of my favorite hÄnglar & stÄnglar stamps...I love tea and tea parties so this is right up my alley!! Not so long ago I traveled the Southeast doing tea and etiquette training and hosting tea parties for both adults and young ones. What fun that was!!!
The image was stamped twice and colored with Copics with a touch of Spica and silver alcohol ink. One of the images was propped up on foam tape for dimension. I also used Puffy Velvet for the trim on the Santa hats. Naturally, instead of the oval I used a bow and of course a tea pot charm as well as a tea cup charm. I CB'd the solid panel using the snowflakes...it ended up showing so little that I don't know why I bothered, in retrospect...lol To finish the front of the card I added 3 sizes of pearls colored with copics to match the Ocean Tides paper.
And the inside is just simply the same papers, a few buttons, and a bit of the same ribbon...I did use the little Maggie table from the Pet and Animal Collection.
Thank you so much for your visit!! I would appreciate your letting me know what you think of these cuties making way for their tea party...Have a wonderful evening and a delightful and enjoyable Sunday!! Big hugs to each of you!!!
