Teapot Tuesday 191

Oui, oui.  We are going to France for the tea party this week.  Or at least we're pretending to go to France where we might see something like this......  

We have a guest hostess this week, Philsmom.  You can visit her gallery by clicking here.  She has written a lovely poem for the challenge this week and asked us to bring things that are French.  

The card that I came up with is a conglomeration of images that came from sets that had French images or names, like Carte Postale (retired) and Artistic Etchings.  I used the retiform technique.

My color choices for this are Marina Mist, Wisteria Wonder and Rich Razzleberry.  I sponged and stamped on a piece of Very Vanilla cs and then layered onto Rich Razzleberry and a Wisteria card base.  

The lace was added by punching a couple of small holes and taking a stitch at the corners of that center shape.  I just taped down the ends of the thread on the back.  

I should be visiting the gallery and commenting but I have had a very trying day week and I'm going to get some rest.  Hope you will check it out.

  1. Get some rest - it's more important than comments :D. I just love your colours and use of retiform on this - and the way the swallow is tugging at the ribbon. Just like music and birds, French on a card is always going to get me.


It's always so nice to hear from visitors. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
