Vintage Teapot

Hi everyone. Loved doing this card, even though it took me most of the day as I take so long in deciding what papers I am going to use before I decide on an image to match. Hope you like it.
  •  papers from cd
  • blue flower made by my own hands using a tutorial from Paper Pleats and Ribbon Roses blog. Lovely blog take a look. 
  • my new flexmarkers used on flower and punched leaves: celestial blue, glacier blue and pale citrus.
  • fiskars lace punch
  • teapot image from the Graphics Fairy blog. I left the image uncoloured as I thought I would spoil it.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
The Shabby Tea Room - week #74 Tea For Two with Blue and Green

Pink Ink Sketch - Challenge #3 Jeanette's Sketch
Any comments are very much appreciated. Have a good weekend xx

Sugar Bowl Challenge

Sorry ladies for not posting as often as most of you, I just don't know how you all craft so much and have the time to blog hop. I seem to spend most of my time blog hopping these days. I just received my new cd of Debbi Moore designs - Shabby Chic, so I thought I would print off some papers and make a card. I used the lovely Sassy stamp Vintage Boutique for this one which you can get from Funky Kits.
  • Debbi Moore papers. I tried to distress the edges with a knife but you cannot really see from the photo. Must invest in a Tim Holtz tool. Added to my list.
  • Lace from stash
  • Promarkers used: sunkissed pink, blush, Ivory and pastel pink for cheeks
  • cocoa, cinnamon, tan, pastel yellow, buttercup, peach, oatmeal and sandstone
  • chalked around the stamped image. Tried using distress ink, but did not have any foam so tried using make up sponges, but did not really get the desired effect, so went back to my good old chalkes.
  • Swirly stamp on corners of image.
  • Spacer metal buttons
