This week is Tickle a Teapotter week, how fun! We do an exchange of our cards with another Teapotter, the recipient not knowing who the card will be from until it arrives.
Our cards this week are based on the story Faith did, about how the Mudder's garden is full of teapots of every shape, size , and color. No flowers, just teapots. So our mission is to bring the flowers, butterflies and bees. No slugs or snails, please.
I decided to do a hanging garden. At first I was going to try and fit 200 flowers into the scene to mark the 200th Teapot challenge. No luck with that, but there's a lot of flowers here. I just realized that I forgot the bees and butterflies, so just maybe, there will be some thing like that added to my hanging garden.
The plant hangers are corner dies from the Cheery Lynn Deco corner set. The pots that you cannot see are little squares that I punched two corners with a MS corner punch. Too bad they can't be seen, they turned out to be good pots. I used a Cheery Lynn flourish for the vines and a small leaf punch. The red flowers are from flower punch, the white are from a star punch, and the blue a circle punch. All shaped with a stylus on a mouse pad with a drop of Stickles or Pearl pen added for the centers.
To make the hanging part, I used twine and beading crimps. All of this was put onto a bg that was embossed with the brick wall ef.
