I'm a little teapot....

Check out this cute piece that's new from Twiddleybitz - a teapot!

 I painted it with gesso, then hot pink acrylic paint, then ran it through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder. I sanded back the tops of the dots to expose the brown chipboard and then coated the whole thing with Dimensional Magic.

A whole day later, it was ready to pop onto a card:

I used a similar treatment for the word 'Invitation' (another new piece from Twiddleybitz) - don't they look juicy? 

I used Girl's Paperie patterned paper. This would have to be my favourite range of 2010 -  I'd love to hear what your favourite range was. 

Come back in a day or two and I'll show you a card I made with one of the little teacups.

  4. I thought the same as sandra. You are very clever!

  5. Gorgeous.

    You exercised such restraint letting it dry. I love the effect you got from your technique.

    I haven't checked out Girl's Paperie.
