Tonight is the Papertrey Ink blog hop and this month's challenge was to use yellow. Seems pretty simple, but I fussed and fussed way too long over creating one card. Eventually I decided on the polished stone technique to give the teapot some shine and color variation. IRL it looks a bit like a real china teapot. I used four different colors of ink, including pink pirouette, rose, yoyo yellow and marigold and the colors when they dried are a close match for PTI berry sorbet and lemon tart, but they look a mix of rose petals to me. The yellow paper in the corner elements and the panel behind the teapot were made using homemade glimmer mist, so the paper has a bit of a shimmer to it. Again, I used yoyo yellow in the glimmer mist mixture, along with pearl colored pearl ex and when it dried, it looks a lot like lemon tart. I coped layout elements from a project Betsy V posted in the April blog hop, also copied her little tea holder for some gifts I gave to friends in Colorado earlier this month. Thanks for looking.
