The Shabby Tea Room is having a Design Team call for 2 lucky people and I thought I would toss my hat in the ring. I absolutely LOVE this color combo and knew that I just HAD to do something fabulous for it (with a little prodding from friends)! Here is the photo inspiration for the contest:
I started with a piece of paper from DCWV "the All Dressed Up matstack" and cut to size. Then, I cut 3 layers of oval-shaped scallops on my Cricut with a design I created in SCAL to mimic the texture of the pieces in the picture. It was then layered with some lace and a yummy black polka dot satin ribbon and bow. The flower was pre-made in my stash and I don't remember the brand but it came in a set at Ms. The pearl in the center of the flower was originally hot pink but I colored with my COPICs to make it black like the knob on the tea pot. Here is a closeup:
The stamp set is from JustRite Just A Little Caffeine Borders and Centers that I colored with my COPICs to match the tea cup. The stamps were cut using Spellbinders Classic Circles. I also backed them with a white Spellbinders Petite Scallop Circle and a black Spellbinders Lacey Circle to mimic the handles on the tea set. The spoon was a baby spoon that I thought was a fun and unexpected touch to the card. I hope you like my take on the inspiration photo. TFL!
