TSTR214 - " Easter Sweetness" at The Shabby Tea Room
Welcome! I'm so very happy you could stop by! I am so excited to share a special project I created for this week's challenge at The Shabby Tea Room. Debbie graciously asked me to guest design this week. And when I took a look at the challenge, I fell in love!
This week our challenge is called
The challenge... create a card/project inspired by the photo below and INCLUDE POLKA DOTS AND STRIPES!
My card base is a soft pink card stock with white matting. I then layered a soft pink swiss dot DP with a soft blue stripe on the opposite side. All edges are distressed. I covered the seam where the two joined with white seam binding and adhered them to my white matting.
The next layer is a simple Wilton doily affixed squarely in the middle. I then placed a piece of floral/newspaper print DP (also distressed) in the middle. I placed it slightly askew for interest. I added a white seam binding bow on top.
The eggs and chick were stamped on Copic compatible paper and colored. I used the coordinating dies to cut each out. I placed all three with dimensional foam. I added a tiny jet bead for the eye and dabbed Liquid Pearls on each "dot" for depth. A bit of glitter glue adorns the center of the little chick's flower. I added a few paper punched leaves and mulberry roses after stamping my sentiment on plain white CS and placing it as shown. Four seed pearls are affixed to each corner. So how did it turn out?
