I'm back today to kick off another fortnightly challenge over at Fairy Fun Fridays. Our challenge to you this time is to make a card inspired by a nursery rhyme. I had fun reviewing nursery rhymes to find one to inspire my card for the challenge. I finally settled on Polly Put the Kettle On and if you want to read the whole rhyme and learn its origin, here is a site to do so. I used the Mojo Monday sketch to get me started. Don't ask me why I used purple again. I'm not a big fan of the color, but it does bring to mind spring and Easter and that's the mindset I'm still in.
The lovely tea pot is a digital image from The Prairie Fairy called, appropriately enough, Tea Time and was colored with Copics. Built on a base of SU's Lovely Lilac, I used a page of a vintage songbook I picked up recently. The dotted paper is from Pink Petticoat Little Big Dots digital papers. A scrap of lace with tiny yellow dots, a doily that I vintaged up, some fabric flowers and the yellow seam binding ribbon I dyed the other day for my tutorial (next post down) are the embellishments that seemed to work. I made a tiny sentiment tag for a Papertrey Ink sentiment from the Out on a Limb set (no longer available with the sentiment) and used my brand new Viva Decor Pearl Pen.
That's it! Nothing too complex here, but if you have questions, ask away. I'm always happy to share. And now, stop on over to Fairy Fun Friday and see what nursery rhymes inspired the rest of the team.
As always, my deep gratitude for reading my blog and for the lovely comments!
