Teapot Tuesday 192

Wouldn't you say this is an elegant table setting?  Silver teapot, pink roses, crystal candlesticks and a cutwork  tablecloth certainly do look elegant to me.  I almost can't believe that we are having a tea party like this.  

We were asked to bring a certain color combination this week.  Pink, Black, White, and Silver.   The first three colors mentioned are not problem, but silver?  Silver could be a little tricky.

Fortunately I just received a package of some lovely mirror stickers from my friend Sabrina.  They are very reflective just like the silver teapot in the picture.  Getting a good picture of this card was going to the bigger challenge for me this week.

I used a double strip of the stickers on top of some black cs.  That, in turn, was mounted on a piece of Whisper White that I had embossed.  Where the mirror strips met I added a pink layered flower and leaves from the Array of Sunshine stamp set.  All this was added onto a base of Regal Rose and then the card itself on black card stock.

Although this card is mostly flat, there is a lot of textural appeal as the flower and leaves are raised up.  The embossed background and the sticker tiles themselves add additional texture.  


  1. Yay, I'm glad those little mirror stickers came in useful so quickly. I knew you'd come up with something, and this is certainly one elegant card, a great reflection of the inspiration photo.

  2. This is so beautiful, Lorraine! I love your elegant use of the mirror stickers.


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