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!
