Teapot Tuesday - Butterflies to Fight Like a Girl

If it's Tuesday, it must be time for the Teapot Tuesday Challenge MMTPT 110 and Destination Station.  This week our cards are going to Madison, Mississippi.  A fellow SCSer has been diagnosed with breast cancer.  Her name is Jackie aka m&m's grandma (here's her gallery) on SCS.   I hear that Jackie loves butterflies, flowers and anything frilly.  I immediately pulled out my Flourishes Think Pink, Fight Like a Girl set.  Sadly, it's been getting too much use lately.

I used the Mojo Monday week 155 sketch:

                                      

Nothing like the teapot which is bright blue but I just couldn't find any mojo to use that color.  I'm hoping this will be frilly enough to make Jackie smile.  I colored then cut out and paper pieced the bodice, heat embossed the whole thing, and glittered it up a bit with a Sakura gel pen. I made my own DP with PTI's Damask Designs.  I used some frilly May Arts Scalloped Edge Satin Ribbon (EN10) to add to the frilly aspect that Jackie loves so much.

Supplies:
Paper - SU Regal Rose, PTI Ivory, black
Stamps - Flourishes Think Pink, Fight Like a Girl, PTI Damask Designs
Ink - Copic markers, Regal Rose, Versafine black, Versamark
Accessories - MS butterfly punch, pearls (I colored them black with a Copic marker), distresser, Spellbinders circle dies, May Arts EN10 ribbon, plastic gems, glue dots

                             
Pin It!
