Rose Porcelain Teapot
This rose porcelain teapot stamp is one of my older stamps and has been well used over the years but each time I use it I get the same joy as if it were a brand new purchase. The stamp is made by All Night Media and is from the Sandy Lynam Clough collection.
Last night I was tidying up my embellishments and realized I hadn't painted with my twinkling H2O's in ages. Well...that was enough tidying. I pulled out the little H2O pots, water and brushes and painted a bunch of images until I couldn't keep my eyes focused anymore. It was fun! For this teapot I used some teeny tiny dabs of raspberry colored liquid pearls on the base and handle of the teapot to give a bit of dimension like a real teapot might have.
I ran out of silver card stock and my silver leafing pen had gone dry so I didn't get to edge the card as I'd hoped to. Ahh...the hazard of stamping and cardmaking late at night. Can't get out to replenish supplies. But I like the way this came out anyway. It is simple. I'm not sure yet if I'll add a sentiment tag or use it as a notecard. In fact, I think I'll ink up this stamp again and try some different things with it.
For now, I had better pull on my boots and mittens and go out in the snow and do some shoveling. I'm sure I'll make a pot of tea when I come in.
Have a warm and cozy day.
