Graphic 45 Botanical Tea number 12

IMG_3711 (Medium)I found a couple of graphic 45 Botanical Tea cards that I haven’t posted yet, and nathan and I haven’t done any photo-ing since we have been back from holidays, time just runs away just now, so I thought I would show these in the mean time, until we find a morning to get the camera out. I have layered two pieces of the patterned paper,and used some very slim strips to act as a frame, fussy cut the tea pot and flowers,and butterfly and added a ribbon bow ( as I tend to do!) and some kindyglitz and rhinestones to finish. I have lots of papers I havent created with yet so I am hoping to get into the craft room this weekend if it’s not too cold – it’s a miserable day here today, so it’s not looking good for the weekend! Til tomorrow….

IMG_6314 (Medium)Here is the last of my Graphic 45 Botanical Tea ( for now) . For this last one I edged all my pieces with Tea Dye distress ink, did some fussy cutting, and used some yellow liquid pearls and kindyglitz to finish.Some of the flowers were 3″d with foam pads.I have spent this afternoon in the craft room planning out one of my June lessons. A different kind of lesson for that month – it will be interesting to see what the ladies think of it. I have had great fun playing with a couple of new dies from couture creations. I am heading back there in a minute to do some stamping – haven’t done much of that lately, and I am feeling creative! til tomorrow….
