Hi everyone, Tracy here and I am sooo excited to be combining two of my loves-
Anyone for afternoon tea?
I have popped together a whimsical paper mache tea cup and teaplate to share with you all using a few of my favourite things . . .
It all started with an empty Kelloggs Cornflake packet, old book pages and watered down pva glue . . .
. . . you can find a template and tutorial here from Ann Wood, will be trying this next time for sure.
I used a teacup to get a rough reference to make my base, chopping and sticking it all together . . . kinda rough and needs some love with stamps and inks galore!!
Taking the stylus tool from Clearsnap, I applied fluid Chalk ink pads for the background.
Time to get stamping with Colorbox Wicked Black Archival ink pad and
the flower stamps from Create your Day by Susan K Weckkeser
Did I tell you yet how much I looove Smooch?
I Looove them, here is a peek at just a few I have used to color in the stamped images . . .
It was looking a bit flat at this point, so out came some Smooch Spritz in various colors along with a few Jumbo sized ones . . . my heart sings when I use them!
I love how the Smooch Spritz brought it to life with bursts of color dotted around!
Susan K Weckesser Stamps and Clearsnap products,
I got carried away and made this in my raggedy old book turned Art Journal,lol.
smooch Spritz to make my the background.
Inking up The Happy Homestead and A Little Bit Washi with the Wicked Black Archival inkpad.
More Smooch Spriz sprays and Jumbo Smooch Spritz to color.
Applying the Watermark ink pad randomly to the page, sprinkling with Clear embossing powder and heating to give it a beautiful shine.
I took another sentiment from Create Your Day, stamped onto card, cut out and fixed in place to finish.
Whew, that`s all from me today
be sure to head on over to the Clearsnap blog to check out what the team created.
