Horses and flowers get well
This week's Teapot Tuesday challenge at Splitcoast Stampers (SCS) is;
A horse is a horse of course, of course.
But now and then, a horse is the source!
The source of a flower of course, of course.
Picked by a horse, of course, of course!
And this is the teapot that inspired the challenge theme:
This is my first time participating in a Teapot Tuesday challenge and I'm really excited to join in. These challenges afford one the opportunity to mail their card to what the Teapotters refer to as "destination station." Now you might be wondering what horses, flowers and a destination station all means and has to do with this card. Well, I'll tell you! One of the "teapotters" daughters fell off her horse recently and is suffering severe injuries. She fractured her skull in the back of her head, fractured her right temple and has two fractures on each side of her spine by her pelvis. She was riding her beloved horse, Max. So we are making get well cards with horses, get well sentiment and including flowers.
You've seen me use this stamp before. It is made by Coronado Island Designs & Stamps and is called "Three Graces". I stamped the image with Momento Tuxedo Black ink and then covered the image with double sided sticky paper/film. Next, I poured ultra fine crystal glitter over the top sticky paper. It really gives a wonderful shimmer.
For the flower requirement I added a polka dot silk flower and stamped "Get Well" (from Papertrey Ink) for the center portion of the flower.
Canada is in the middle of a postal strike so my card may take a while to get to Jessica.
I hope to participate in more Teapot Tuesday challenges at SCS. What a delightful group of stampers. They are talented, FUNNY, and generous with their artwork.
Until next time!
