Tea Party Invites



















As promised here is a photograph of the project I have been busy with for the last few days, a colleague at school has asked me to make invitations for a 90th Birthday Party.  Her MIL is 90 in October and they are having a Tea Party for her.






















It took me ages to decide which stamp to use, she wanted flowers, so this Brocade stamp seemed perfect, I love the way it looks like chintzy wallpaper.  I stamped the image and embossed in clear, then distressed with Tea Dye ink.






















I was inspired by this project by Jennifer McGuire to add a sentiment to your base card.  After following the tutorial  I added  "Lets Celebrate" and adjusted the colour to silver grey.

Supplies:Hero Arts CG198 Paper Art.  Tea Dye Distress Ink. Ribbon and Pearls.  Spellbinders Scalloped Ovals.

Hope you are having a great week, only 10 more days and the school summer holiday is over, as always its whizzed by and I have only done a few of the things I was hoping to do, never mind!

Beautiful, Sally - job well done! I must try to do a sentiment on the computer,too; it sounds daunting to me, getting it in just the right place, but it would open up a whole new world, being able to say exactly what you want.
