Hello and happy Monday. Welcome to my Tea and Sweet Shoppe! This week's challenge cut at BBTB2 is the Genie Lamp from the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge. I ALMOST went with a cute oasis scene on my card but then I decided to take the road less traveled and add my lamp to a line of assorted teapots.
I like the store window effect I created by welding two shapes from George in Design Studio and then adding layers. And of course I had to add pearls and gems to my sweets and shelving. I used copic markers and my Ranger white gel pen to embellish the teapots, cups, and sweets.
I kept trying to find a way to add large flowers and ribbon, but the additions distracted from my main store window effect so I did not use them. Instead, I finished the card by adding a swiss dot cardstock mat inside the card and cutting a "sweet" phrase with the Cindy Loo font.
I believe I mentioned a BBTB2 BLOG HOP!! Yes it is our blog hop week. I have some sweet blog candy up for grabs - just leave a message below and you will be in the drawing for a CUSTOM CROPS GIFT VOUCHER!!! That's right! Free shopping!!
