I decided to concentrate on the tea cup and made this shabby chic fun whimsical china cup full of flowers, rosettes and other ephemera.
I used a napkin to create the "china cup" feel. This has been layered onto the die cut and then crackled with Deco Art Crackle Glaze.
I have used gold paint around the edges of the cup and spoon to add that old china tea set look. The decoration on the spoon was a gold rub on.
There is a "separator" as part of the die which allows two cups to be put together to create a cup to fill. I cut mine down to half the size so I could get the cup sitting on the cotton reel. But it still gave enough room to add plenty of embellishments.
I got a bit of height at the back by adding three rosettes of different sizes. Then I stuffed the box with some tissue paper which gave me a base to adhere the other elements. In places it was easier to use sticky pads rather than waiting for the glue to dry!
So what not to love !!!! These dies are going to be spectacularly popular so keep a look out here in the UK for stockists, particularly Country View Crafts who hope to be stocking both dies shortly.
Thank you for joining me today and have fun hopping and see you at the Release Party later!!
