What Inspires You?

This week at Picture Perfect Creations, we're going with an inspiration challenge using this picture. Reminds me of ladies sipping afternoon tea and eating finger sandwiches.

Well I stayed with the tea theme using this digital image from Fresh Brewed Designs. You can check out all of the new tea images HERE. I wanted this plain teapot so I could paper piece, figured it could look more vintage that way! I used other papers from this pack of dsp (SU's Parisian Summer) to create the layers of scallops. The sentiment is from Clear Dollar Stamps.

I used the awesome sketch from Eat Sleep Stamp - isn't it wonderful, I just had to turn it on its side. Now do a couple of favors for me and head on over to Picture Perfect Creations to check out the rest of the DTs awesome inspirations then get creating and show us yours!!!!!!

I was so excited when you asked me to create some tea themed images for you Linda! I had a lot of fun drawing them up knowing they were for a very sweet friend.

I LOVE the way you paper pieced the teapot! The colors are very soft and pretty, just as a tea party should be :)

Lots of hugs!

Your teapot is so cool! Love the coloring/paper piecing too and the layout of your card. When I looked at your card and what you wrote it made me think...wouldn't it be nice to be able to meet our DT and craft and have a spot of tea. Another fabby card. Have a wonderful day :)
