Teapot Tuesday Challenge 15 - INKredible Color Challenge 10/7

Well, I knew it would happen sooner or later. I knew that one week I would be able to combine the two challenges that I do. This week's color combo was to use pink - any pink, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The teapot that Cindy chose for this week's teapot challenge lent itself to that pink theme very well.

I love the 3-D roses on the teapot and saucer. Don't you? Believe it or not, I do not have a "true rose" stamp. The closest one that I could come up with is the flower from the Bella's Bloom set which I stamped in Pretty in Pink on watercolor paper. I used my aquapainter to highlight the edges of the petals in Regal Rose.I think I went a little overboard with the background flowers. They are from the other Bella set. And......... I don't have any really good rose leaf stamps (that's one thing that I would like to see more of with the SU flower stamp sets - leaves that go with the flowers!) so I used some 5/8" Old Olive grosgrain as the leaves. This card has all SU product in it's ingredients.

Check out Cindy's glob for her take on the teapot and please check out the Color Girls in the left sidebar for their take on the color challenge this week.

On a side note - I went for my yearly Mammogram today. I hope that every woman reading this has done the same this year. I went to a Basket Bingo last year with over 150 women present. We were asked to stand if you knew someone who had been treated for breast cancer. There was no one in that room that remained in their seat. And not enough of us were able to sit down when asked if we knew anyone who had lost their battle with breast cancer. We need to change that. Go get squished!


  1. Beautiful, absolutely beautiful! You didnt need a rose....this is perfect.....I dont think you over did the background, I think its perfection! I love the feminineness of it. Not sure that is a word, but you know what I mean.

    Thanks for coming to my teaparty after your mammogram! Love that you were able to!

    Thanks for the link!

  2. Thanks for the reminder! I'm getting squished next month.

    I love the roses! I don't think you overdid the background either. Beautiful work!

  3. Beautiful teapot and tea cup! Yes, I love the 3-D roses!
