Tea Party

Hi there and welcome to my new followers. Today I am sharing another DT project for Craft Consortium using their new Paper pad called Wild Rose.

When I noticed this MDF Teacup in our local bargain shop I just knew it was begging to be altered.

I used the shape as a template to draw around my sheet of paper and cut it out. I went around the edges of the shape with some pink paint and added a layer of white crackle paint. Once dry, I glued my paper in place.

I applied a layer of Crackle Glaze over the paper to make it look like crazed porcelain rubbing in some Antiquing Cream to highlight the cracks.

My doll stamp was shaded with Copics, fussy cut and I stamped her dress onto the Wild Rose papers and layered on, attaching some bling.

My Resin Roses I rubbed a little Gesso onto and once dry added some Stickles over the top.

My Tea Party image was stamped and shaded with Distress inks, mounting onto die cuts.

I complimented this image with my teapot/cups and cats.

Finishing off with some ribbon and lace.

Thanks for stopping by today and please remember to follow Craft Consortium on Facebook for regular giveaways and inspiration. You will also find them on Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest.
