TIME FOR TEA MY BESTIE

TIME FOR TEA WITH 'MY BESTIE' STAMP


TODAY I GOT TO PLAY WITH A 'MY BESTIE' STAMP CALLED 'TIME FOR TEA' THAT I GOT FROM www.createandcraft.tv THEY HAVE LOTS OF CRAFT GOODIES THERE!!!

I SAW THIS ONE AND JUST HAD TO HAVE IT.

I WANTED TO TRY AND MAKE A VINTAGE LOOKING CARD AND KEEP IT SIMPLE.



I USED A 8 X 8 INCH PLAIN CARD. I LOVE MAKING THIS SIZE CARD.
I STAMP THE IMAGE USING 'TEA DYE DISTRESS INK' ON TO SOME GOOD QUALITY CARD STOCK. I USED A SPONGE TO BLEND IN THE INK ON THE IMAGE  TO GIVE IT A AGED, VINTAGE LOOK, SPRAYED IT WITH 'SPRAY AND SPARKLE, PINK IRIDESCENT GLITTER ' FROM CRAFTERS COMPANION AND ADDED SOME GLOSSY  ACCENTS TO HER HAIR, EYES, DRESS AND HAT.




THE BACKGROUND IS MADE USING CORRUGATED KRAFT BOARD, LOVE THIS STUFF, AND I DIE CUT A 'TRELLIS TONIC DIE' TO GO ON TOP, I DISTRESS IT WITH THE INK TO KEEP THE VINTAGE FEEL GOING.


 THE FLOWER IS MADE USING A DIE FROM 'SIZZIX' DESIGN BY 'TIM HOLTZ' CALLED 'TATTERED FLORALS', IT MAKES THE MOST GORGEOUS BLOOMS, I USED TISSUE AND CARD STOCK THAT I DISTRESS WITH INKS. I ADDED A SMALL FLOWER TO THE CENTRE TO FINISH THE LOOK, SPRAYED WITH 'SPRAY AND SHINE' AND ADDED GLAMOUR DUST TO MAKE IT SPARKLE.


 I HAVE SOME GORGEOUS LEAF DIES FROM 'SPELLBINDERS' CALLED 'SPRIGS', I DIE CUT THEM AND INK THROUGH THE DIE TO ADD A TOUCH OF COLOUR.


 I MADE A SMALLER BLOOM IN THE SAME WAY AND ADDED SOME SPRIGS TO THE TO MAKE THE FLOWER POP OUT


THE SENTIMENT IS FROM 'CRAFTWORK CARDS' I ADDED INK TO IT , TO MAKE IT BLEND IN WITH THE CARD, THE LACE IS FROM 'CREATIVE EXPRESSION' AND I THINK IT JUST FINISHES OFF HE VINTAGE CARD LOOK.

I DO HOPE YOU ENJOYED YOUR VISIT AND PLEASE TRY AND POP OVE AND HAVE A LOOK AT ALL THE GORGEOUS 'MY BESTIES' GOODIES AT CREATE AND CRAFT AND www.scrapbookstampsociety.com
