Today is another Tuesday...my wonderfully fun friend, Cindy, (Mothermark) has a Tuesday Teapot Challenge that always has me giggling the day away!! Today's challenge was inspired by a very unusual teapot and challenge card by Cindy herself. The card was a Sumo wrestler...oh my...and so I knew there'd be a rowdy group today. So my idea was to bring a bit of refinement to this party, and stand way back, hey where's my fan? There is flying sushi in here...duck!!
You can check out her teapot card here:
I used my Artfully Asian stamp set and gold embossed, then filled in with a blender pen using ruby red and blue bayou inks. The insert is a bookmark using an antiqued brad. The outside belt is some of this wonderful designer paper and some Papertrey ribbon gifted by my dear friend, Linda Borneman...and her kimono card is where I found today's inspiration. Thanks so much Linda! Here is Linda's card:
The tutorial for this kimono card can be found here:
I admit to not following written directions well, so the pictures were a big help to me in the tutorial. It still took me three times to get this right...my advice...start with copy paper to not ruin good cardstock!!
Thanks for coming by today, and no coffee, but would you like a cup of sake??
