Faith aka Yabbadodo gave us a delightful story and challenge for the teaparty this week. Take this path to find out more: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...r-t554778.html
OK, so this a flagrant CASE of da Mudder from a couple of weeks back. Hers is a masterpiece. Stamped the OnyxXpressions gazebo on Flourishes white in Memento Tuxedo black and colored with Copics. Ran some Celery and Garden Green through the CB Leopard print EF and Suede through a TH EF. Cut several flowers with MS Hydrangea punch and 1/4" circle punch, gave them dimension with my stylus on a kitchen sponge. Added liquid pearls, Stickles, Smooch or gold gel pen to add interest. Did you know that when you use Nesties Leafy Squares that all of these little ivy-leaf punchies are left over? They are just the right size for these teenie flowers. Used Savannah Border die for the ivy vines on the gazebo. The sky is Baja colored over with Copics, the clouds Sponged with Archival Brilliance Platinum Planet & Pearlescent Purple and a TE clouds die mask. Added a branch from Twigs and Berries and leaves from TE Tiny Leaves. The birdhouse was stamped in vanilla on brown ruched paper and highlighted with a white gel pen. PT - you tell me, Pamzi!
I hope that someone likes this as it will be tickling a teapotter. Thanks so much for looking and have a peaceful day.
PS Took a daylight picture which I think improves the quality.

Oh my goodness Marie! What a wonderful little scene you created here.....its like I am turning the paige of a fairy tale.....I love the sweet little pathway lined by happy little blooms, the litle birdie house in the tree and the dimension is incredible! This is not a case of mine, I have never made a card with an inviting little gazebo like this.......but maybe you were inspired by Gypsey's little picnic scene.....cuttlebugged together and flat! Snort! YOUR's is a masterpiece! I so love this....and so is the lucky teapotter whose name you draw! Lovely! I wan't my garden to look like that.....and the gazebo can be teapot storage! Giggle!

What a beautiful, serene and inviting scene you have created. This will look perfect in Mudder's yard, just don't let her store teapots in the gazebo.
Thanks for playing along.
