This card is for the Teapot challenge for this week and is for Judy McGuire, Jennifer McGuire's mum-in-law.
This was a hard card for me because Jennifer has long been one of my craft mentors and muses all be it unbeknown to her.
I really wanted to do a special card and felt I was on my metal to produce something good but also typically my style, whatever that might be.
I do love backgrounds so chose a sketch that allowed for the background to feature. I used the teapot shown in the challenge to inspire me.
I used the "Oxide Ink and Baby Wipe" technique to create the background that I first saw on this years DTGD hosted by Kia. Two days later and a whole bunch of backgrounds later I finally decided that the first one I did was the one I liked the best for this card. I now have a great pile of backgrounds I can use on other cards lol.
Next I had to find a suitable greeting or quote and boy was that hard I eventually created my own greeting using the computer printing it off and using my light tablet to trace the greeting onto the card front with Copic Multi Liners.
I coloured the teapot and macaroons with H2O watercolour paints and watercolour mop brushes. Once dry I used a Jennifer technique I use all the time. I backed the teapot onto some craft foam to give it some height.
I put the card together while I was waiting for the teapot to dry buffing the front panel with a little Dorland's Wax Medium which brought the colours out even more and also the strip for the inside and put the inside panel together as well.
Finally I glued the teapot to the front and popped the two macaroons up with a couple of SU Dimensionals and added the sequins and that's it.
Hope you like it and thank you for looking.
