Shabby Tea Room #67

Are you ready for a fun week of inspiration and creativity in the Tea Room? If so check out the beautiful cards that the DT has designed and don't miss the creative entries. Be sure to leave a little love! Grab some papers and play along. Using the photo as inspiration create a card or project using the colors in the photo AND polka dots and/or gingham.


Here is the card I created using the above recipe. I used all the ingredients just like I do when I cook or bake. Ha Ha Ha


This was a "fun" card to make. The flower and leaf dies are from PTI, the butterfly (which I seem to be using a lot lately) is from C.C. Designs. The pink gingham paper is from a Heidi Grace paper pad that I purchased at JoAnn's, green polka dot paper is DCWV, rhinestones are Recollection and the edger is Martha Stewart. I slightly curled the leaves and flower to give it a little more dimension then used foam tape to keep the shape. Plaid Extreme Glitter was lightly brushed on the flower and leaves to give them a little glitz. Coloring was done with Copic markers.

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.

Wow! Your coloring is just gorgeous! I had to click on it to see more detail, because it is really lovely. The rhinestone flourish adds a wonderful finishing touch, too.

Wow! In the close-up pic, I thought you paper pieced the flowers, but you said you used copics to color! Amazing coloring! The whole card is fabulous. I am adding you to my reader so I never miss a post! (Found you thru Inky Antics blog ... thanks Jackie!)
