Pot Of Tea, Anyone? CQC 335

What a lovely inspiration at Colour Q this week. The naive felt image suggested a teapot to me. At another stage of my creativity I painted ceramics, and teapots were one of my favourite pieces. Today I 'painted' the teapot with daisies from Grateful Bunch. I used bleach in an Aquapainter to remove some of the colour from the inside of the petals after heat embossing with white embossing powder. Next I filled in new colour with an Only Orange Stampin' Marker from my mother's stash. Soft Sky has substituted for Cool Caribbean, and I daubed some more colour around the edges. One sentiment is from A Nice Cuppa, the other from Happy Happenings.
It is awfully handy having the Cups and Kettles framelits and a punch for the Grateful Bunch daisies. Not half as messy as sanding back a ceramic piece and preparing it, before painting and then glazing. I'm very glad I found stamps and ink!

I thought you might like to see a bit more detail of the teapot and how nicely the grouping of three flowers placed onto the pot. There doesn't seem to be a lot of difference between my Only Orange and Calypso Coral, but it is a very old marker.

I think I might just go brew a pot of tea now
Cheers, Rachel
