An interesting color combo today from ColourQ. I almost passed it up, but I just have to give it a try and see what I could come up with for a card. To help me along I combined ColourQ with the current Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge to make a project using a teapot or teacup. So... I reached for my Taylored Expressions Creativi-TEA set and two different Waltzingmouse sets: Victorian Frippery & Large Doily. The other day I made a card where I used the border stamp from Victorian Frippery to create a layered border. This time I stamped the border along one side of the card base using SU!'s Chocolate Chip ink. I stamped the border again on a 1 1/2 strip of white cardstock and then trimmed it out as shown. I really quite like the look of the trimmed out border image. The teapot was stamped using SU!'s Groovy Guava, a peachy color similar to Peach Parfait. One of the doily images was stamped using grey in and then diecut. A scalloped circle was diecut from Sahara Sand cardstock as a mat. The ribbon is PTI's Melon Berry double stitched. The whole thing was finished with a rolled rose made from white felt.
