Good morning! It is very early and I've been up for HOURS! I woke up and just couldn't go back to sleep for some reason. I hate when that happens and I lay in bed trying so had to go back to sleep. Then, the longer I try, the more thoughts race through my mind. So, two and a half hours later, here I am writing to you, dear readers.
I have a card to share with you today. First, however, I would like to share the story of the teapot. One day, I came across a blog that had an adorable teapot card. As I read, I learned that the mother of the author of the blog had drawn four differently styled teapots for her. The gal posted the patterns on the blog to share with others. This was one of the four. Sadly, I didn't bookmark her blog! I have no idea who she is (and I don't have the other three patterns, either)! So, I deeply apologize for not giving this wonderful blogger credit where credit is due. If you know the name of her blog, please let me know. I sure would like to use the other patterns and give the blog owner credit.
I love how this card turned out. It is so pretty in real life. There is lots of layering on all three "pages" of the card. I've also used machine stitching and pretty doilies throughout. Tilda was colored with inks. The background paper pictured on the inside of the card isn't quite as dark as it looks on the screen. The solid color on the front of the card is quite true. I used pearl accents on the spout (it looks like swirling steam) and along the edge of the teapot opening. Iand even added tiny little pearls on Tilda's "ears."
Here are the shots:
Have a wonderful day everyone. Thank you so much for stopping by. I love your visits and love, even more, the comments you share!
