Time for tea.

Teatime plaque

Hello again.
Welcome to anyone I met at the Handmade fair on Friday, at Hampton Court.
What an amazing venue!
I had a great time speaking to new, and experienced crafters, and there was loads of interest in the Artcuts products.

I hope everyone who came had an enjoyable day and thank you for all the positive feedback.

Just a quick post today to show a plaque that quite a few people admired.

The board was painted with the pink coloured acrylic paint, left to dry, then a crackle glaze put on top. When this was dry, I painted over with the light colour and left it to dry and crackle.
The teapot and cups were painted and when dry, I scuffed the edges.
The heart shapes and letters were stuck down with full strength PVA glue.
The stamping was done with a Versafine black inkpad, using stamps from Hobby Art.
Seeing the photo of the plaque now, I think it would have looked better if the flowers had been stamped with a pink colour rather than black.
Next time!! 
Thanks for visiting

  1. Pretty plaque Carole. Glad you had a good time at Hampton Court. Too expensive for me to go, so went to Ally Pally. Hugs, Carol S.xx


Many thanks for taking the time to comment. It's lovely to know other crafters are reading my blog.
Best wishes
