Teapot Tuesday 69

Maureen is our hostess this week and because it's a holiday week and everyone is very busy, she gave us a simple challenge this week.  Thanks Maureen!  Here is the beautiful teapot that she chose.  (Here is a link to her blog.)

I love the rose on this teapot.  I love the color and the placement - it's just such a sweet tea for one set. 

The rose reminded me of the rose from the Manhattan Flowers texture plate, so I took some Shimmery White paper and before I embossed it, I brayered Rose Red Ink on the plate.  I hope you can see in the picture below, the shimmer that comes through the ink.  It turned out just like I had hoped. 

I trimmed the flower and then mounted it on some more Shimmery White.  Added the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes and mounted that on Hunter Green.  The background/base of the card is Purely Pomegranate, stamped with the leaf stamp from Autumn Splendor in VersaMark ink.  I am lucky enough to still have some Purely Pom stitched grosgrain for the bow and the last step was to add the little stick-on jewels.

I have a few thank you's to catch up with for my wonderful friends who have been taking good care of me while I recuperate.  This will come in handy!

Please take a look at the teapot gallery this week - I know you'll enjoy it!
