Friendship Tea

Friendship Tea

This week is FRIENDSHIP TEA time!

Eileen's tea cup scoreboard die cut makes the perfect presentation to any special event! Here I used the 3D tea cup as a vase. Buttons whipped into flowers & tucked within the tea cup. The saucer is trimmed with lace and tinted an orange to fit the color scheme that Brenda Pinnick of Color U challenged us with. Since Brenda is all about COLOR, I used plenty of it for this project making it very festive. Here are the two samples we were to choose from:

I chose color scheme #1, working closely with the violet, orange and off yellow.
Taking those three colors in acrylic, pooled so sides were touching, I pounced the colors randomly until I got the look I wanted with all pieces separate. When good & dried, red liner tape was applied to the edges to keep a firm hold when assembled. After assembly, I decided the cup & saucer needed a sheen so out came the polyurethane spray! I later added the white ruffle lace to the saucer, stippled it with orange StazOn to keep within the color palette. Swavorski crystals add jut the right amount of BLING every girlfriend needs to be noticed! Painted the little tag and added friendship saying, strung it with wire & hung off the cup. Green pipe cleaners were stems for my button flowers. Put all this together & you've got a wonderful little party favor or a little centerpiece that would delight just about anyone!
