Thursday Treasures! photo prompt!

Posted by

A late post this week so I thought I would cut straight to the quick this time with a photo prompt!

I spotted this gorgeous cake picture on Pinterest just by chance and figured it was so beautiful I could use it as a Thursday Treasures photo prompt…

I wonder how it will inspire you?

For me it is of course the only tea party that really counts… The mad hatters tea party of course! So I grabbed a picture the princess insisted on being taken of her, the dormouse and the teapot and set to!

I used the fabulous Confetti Celebrations DSP as it’s bright and wacky and create this page without any sketch for a change. I usually have a sketch to hand via Pinterest but occasionally, it’s dictated by the colours I want to use the papers and cardstock I have to hand … This is one such page.

I decided to use the teapot stamp from a random set I’ve had for ages from a magazine and stamped it all across the page in Strawberry slush. I also stamped one more on Whisper White, fussy cut it out, and then I added some glossy accents to this to glaze it. Next I added a bit of additional colour to the teapots with the ink and my watercolour brush.

All the DSP was matted with a layer of cardstock in coordinating colours and then doodled around the edge of the layers with my trusty white gel pen. I also added a bit of bunting made from the Pennant Parade stamps and the pennant punch. There were a couple of banners from the Banner Blast stamp set punched out. I also used the Stripes stamp to put the lines in for the journalling panel.

Sorry it’s a rubbish pic… Will need to upload a better one when I get a moment. But hopefully you can see what I did with the inspiration… And now I want tea and cake myself!

Happy crafting!
