Kettle Sketch

Jen Cuthbertson is on a sketch creating ROLL!  Here is another one she made especially for the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog...



Time for tea...


Used the sweet sets Afternoon Tea and Afternoon Tea Sentiments!  Found some patterned paper in the October Afternoon 5 & Dime Collection that had recipes in on it...for delicious treats, no less!  And if you do a double take, you will see my sewing?  (Those single stitches!)  YES, that is about the extent of  it!


Paper-pieced the kettle with more patterned paper, and placed the cup in front with some dimensionals.  
That sentiment just makes me smile :)

It was no easy task picking the Top Mice from last week, and I can only imagine how hard it will be with this week's sketch!  Be sure to upload your creation with this sketch HERE by next Friday, February 17th.  Be sure to include at least one Waltzingmouse Stamps image on your project to be eligible to be the randomly-selected player who will win a WMS set of choice!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Afternoon Tea & Afternoon Tea Sentiments, Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper:  PTI Vintage Cream, October Afternoon 5 & Dime and Holiday Style Collections
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress Ink, red Copic marker
Other:  PTI Button Boutique die, mini metal clip, red embroidery floss, dimensionals

LOVE this card! Saw the recipe BG and thought vintage book, but hey, October Afternoon is nearly as great. And those single stiches are perfect. Less IS more.
