Thinlits, thinlits!





This started with a pretty basic image -- a plain teacup.  I didn't want to go cute, I wanted more vintage, so I thought to cut the teacup out of one of my favorite dsp's -- Venetian Romance -- to give the more vintage look.  The Bloomin' Hearts thinlit is also cut from Venetian Romance, but the Pistachio Pudding/Vanilla script pattern.  The flowers were stamped with Pistachio Pudding on Vanill, then fussy cut, the centers painted over with Wink of Stella, then a pearl put in the center of each.  The detail on the cup and the "steam" were also painted over with Wink of Stella.

Picture Perfect



With all the snow that we've had, I was feeling in the mood for the color of spring -- this was the result.  There are many layers of texture on this card, which didn't photograph well.  Gold sequins, Smooch.  The leaves were cut from Birthday Bouquet dsp.
