Shabby Viva Teapot...

Hiya!

I wanted to play along with this week's Shabby Tea Room challenge - this is a new challenge to me, and the challenge was indeed challenging lol! It was to use white/cream and only one other colour - eek! As a girl who loves her colour challenges and layers of colours of cardstock, this one took some thinking through! Anyway, this is what I came up with:


I rummaged through my stash of DSP and found these pink sheets that matched rather well and were a perfect match to the Blushing Bride ribbon I love so much. I also discovered that some of my PTI buttons were a perfect colour match as well. I used a set from PTI that I picked up at CHA last year, added some stickles to the leaves on the teapot (after tracing around the edges with a Blushing Bride marker) and layered on a paper doily (also from the States!). I added some lace and pearls as well as the ribbon/button combo. The layout is from week 4 of the Viva la Verve sketches this month.

Thanks for stopping by!
