On a happier note More Than Words Challenge site has been born and I'm looking forward to joining these ladies in my future creative efforts.
Here is the Mood Board
I was immeadiately inspired by the macaroons- my mind went straight to a photo I had taken of the window of the Hopetoun Tea Rooms in Melbourne Australia.
I was also inspired by the varying pink and lilac shades, the flowers and the gold crusting on the rim of the glasses.
The champagne glasses themselves also reminded me of celebrations, and that combined with the macaroons lead me to the theme of High Tea!
In Australia a high tea is a special occasion where people get together and share hot tea, ( some prefer coffee or wine/champagne) and a selection of cakes, sandwiches and savories. It is usually an occasion much enjoyed by all!!
On my page I included a hidden tag where I wrote about my experience at the Hopetoun Tea Rooms and yes I did have a cake!!
It certainly is Vibrant!!
I used Prima Royal Menagerie Paper, strips of Prima resist canvas, white flowers and lace.
I then stencilled Prima Stencil" Rose" on the background before spraying with Lindy's Stamp Gang Ink
-Flat Fabio " Popping Pink", Starburst " Hi Maintainence Magenta"
and Flat Fabio "urban Amethyst".
Then I thought it needed some stamping so here and there I stamped my prima "dirty walls" and "Garden Fable" stamps with Archival Jet Black and Magenta Hue.
Thinking it still needed something else I sprayed it again with Heida SWapp Color Shine "Gold" and was quite pleased with the result!!
I bought the tea cup die a number of years ago, before I knew the importance of remembering what brand!!
Kaisercraft Alphabet die, and "All that Glitters" collection paper provided the finishing touches.
Hope you like it!! :) :) :)
