For teapot Tuesday, I took my inspiration straight from the teapot with both it's colors and the bouquet of spiky purple lavender.
I think my spiky flowers are probably hollyhocks but it was the illusion I was looking for. I die cut them in white, sponged on Wilted violet and added some darker centers with Wisteria. The stems and leaves were colored with Tea grass green. I also die cut some "filler" sprays from a random scrap of green that was on my desk. I embossed the bg panel and framed with purple, rounding the corners. The vase was an oval that I embossed with swiss dots. - I cut off the ends and banded with more purple to form the vase. Added the flowers & leaves loosely following the ikebana style of flower arranging.
