Tea cup Tuesday 22 and an ATC

I love Tea Cup Tuesday with Terry and Martha. Another chance to see some wonderful china and gardens. I have made some lovely friends with TCT and I look forward to it each week.

Isn't this little set just lovely? not a mark on it and lovely and bright but not in your face (if you know what I mean) This is more English china by Argyle (Burslem Staffordshire) The shape is just lovely I think it's a pedistal shape? the gilding is just perfect not often I get really perfect pieces.

Are you loving the challenges with Linda as much as me? This weeks is all about Grunge board/paper on page 39 of the Compendium of Curiosities. Nice back to basics, but you can do so much with grunge board. I also thought I would combne this with Hels Something old (grunge board) Something new (the TH DPs yummy). This is also the challenge over at Artistic Stamper So I hope you like my ATC.

This image has been transferd on to material. The papers are lovely from Tim and I have used the Grunge Board from the plain elements coloured with DI and then stamped with scriped. I hope you can get a chance to look at some lovely china or join in with the challenge at Linda's. Love Dawn xx

Items Used:- Plain cardstock. Stamps, SU. Image, Suzie Q. Distress Inks (DI), Ranger. Grunge board, Tickets, Design papers & Pins Tim Holtz. Material stash.

Dawn, this is sensational! Absolutely beautiful work on the inked grunge, and the image transfer is AWESOME! Sweet embellishments, too, with the little red heart and flourish, and the "LOVE" ticket. It's wonderful!

Gorgeous tea cup, too!

Lovely Teacup. I'm always on the look out for an apple teacup. I've never heard of grunge inking. It looks like a well loved antique. I like it and will have to learn more. Thank you. take care.
