Shabby teapot!!


Today I am posting a card that has been great fun to make, mainly because it's not a huge job like a mini album or a video tutorial, just a nice small project where someone tells me the guide lines and I can just go for it .....Yes I'm going to make 2014 a go for it year!!!!
My daughter has been requesting lots of albums for sooo long now I just can't put her off any longer!!!

Anyhow, lets get back to my card.  The main colours are white and cream. Firstly I coated the card with matt medium and then used gesso over a stencil to give some nice texture.  The edges are inked with Ranger distress inks to bring in a bit of definition.  For the butterfly, a textured cardboard was used and then a scrape of gesso and glossy accents on the edges with a hint of glitter added for a bit of sparkle...{You can never have enough sparkle!!!!).
Also added was a die cut envelope and some flowers, buttons and ribbon to set it off.
Do you like my knitting? I haven't knitted for years and it is a hard task doing it with cocktail sticks!

Hope you like it...I am entering it into the challenge at The shabby tea room You should pop over and see the site.

 Have a good week
