This was such an enjoyable card to make. I used two backgrounds from stash-the large one under the diecut and the teacup. The teacup is made from a panel of Saran Wrap printing, using the Brilliance metallic ink. No water involved when you use pigment ink. Sentiment stamped and clear embossed with the same ink. Background is an experiment with DOx sprays and acrylic paint, lots of shimmer and shine. I sprayed the diecut on top with two sprays-Bo Bunny sugar and then a little bubble gum pink.
I decided that I needed to CASE Pat (casep) as much as possible this week because she is a true blue, dedicated tea potter. I used this card for inspiration: https://www.splitcoaststampers.com/g...0&ppuser=93505
This will go to Jeanne, who is 85 years old, used to love to stamp but her eye sight is failing. I might be that Jean someday and it scares me. But, besides taking care of my eyes, not much else I can do. I used many different products from Pat's creation but I think you can see the similarities. A well deserved FS week!

Love this. The bg behind your die cut as beautiful colors and one of my favorite color palettes. The spritzing on that gorgeous die card really softens the white and looks super. Love, love, love the dandelions on your teacup. Great CASE of Pat's card. Wonderful card for Jeanne.
Yeah, I might be Jeanne someday too and it is scary. So I am doing like you and trying my best. Hugs.

Thank you for making this stunning card for Jeanne! Cardmaking, and especially being part of Splitcoast, has been a saving grace for me as I have dealt with the slings and arrows of life - I too, fear losing this. It's wonderful to share it with you all.
