It's been a while since I've done a Teapot Tuesday Challenge. Life does get in the way of my fun - bah! This looked to be an interesting challenge and you can read all about here. Cindy is such a super writer. And she always find such great inspiration for us. This reminds me of a lamp that my cousin bought. But for this challenge think camouflage, pink, and hearts.
I've got camouflage, pink and hearts! Lucky for us it's Valentine's season. I didn't have to dig anything out cause I was using most of this stuff on other Valentine projects.
The base is Pretty In Pink with lots of Pretty in Pink hearts I got from the Fashionable Hearts embosslit. The little teacup is from a new set called Tea Shoppe and the tree comes from Valentine Defined. The background looks hard but it wasn't really hard, just a little time-consuming. What was hard was coloring the tree. I used several different shades of green markers and the stamp had to be held just at the right angle so I could tell which little heart had been inked already. For some reason (I think it was because I didn't do such a great job cleaning this stamp the last time I used it) I kept getting green hearts with pink outlines. Not the effect I was going for, so I tried three times before I got one that I could live with.
The finishing touch was adding the little white cotton thread bow.
