Crafty Pad DT card

I have been dying to share this card with you for the last couple of week ever since I received the design to create my card with... As many of you will know my new obsession is Emma Bridgewater and I have a very small collection now pride of place in my collection - this image is fantastic to recreate the colours that Emma Bridgewater uses in the pottery and I have done my best ro replicate these with my Stampin Up ink ads and aqua brush - I got my lovely friend Heather (if you were to visit her home you would see the MASSIVE collection of EB that she has built!) to send me a couple of close up images of the pottery so I could get the colours just right!
I have chosen on this occasion to paint my teapot in crumb cake so that the colours are shown better when using a white card black and to show the shading of the teapot and the cup I kept the design of the card very simple on this occasion as I didn't want to detract away from the image of the teapot! So for the colours I have chosen bashful blue, real red, so saffron garden green and wasabi green. I loved making this card and I am really pleased with the results - I have also chosen to use a crafty pad sentiment, and I have punched this out and mounted it twice on so saffron and bashful blue. To the top left hand side of the image I have used three pearls o decorate. The background of the card is bashful blue and so saffron on a whisper white card blank. I can see that I will be using this image much more! I hope you like my card and thanks for stopping by your comments are always appreciated.
Thanks also to Emma Bridgewater for lovely pottery and colours to look at and Heather for an amazing collection of photos! x
