Tea for two.......

Morning peeps at last some rain to make the grass green again, just as long as it knows when to stop and that the sun does shine again, I managed to get some time in the garden yesterday to cut back, dead head and weed. I only have a small garden but it still took me all afternoon, and I still have another side to do, which hopefully if it doesn't rain any more I will get out today and do. This year we have a lot of frogs as the ducks have left the tadpoles alone, we ussually get three ducks from the park come and visit us each year but this year they didn't hence lots of frogs which jump out when you start digging and weeding.....great fun when I was cutting back a plant and nearly died of

Todays project is a dresser cupboard with lots of bits n bobs using some of the new stamps from Crafty Individuals. When I saw the new set entitled ......Tea for Two I knew that I wanted to use one of the many templates that I have from House of Zandra, the only problem is getting a strong enough card to use as they are quite big templates and I hate using the original, the card I used wasn't quite thick enough for the paint crackle effect that I did on the outside of the dresser.All of the images have been coloured with prisma pencils.......actually I coloured them whilst I was on my holls.....chillin' in the sun.

I've embossed crowns on he background paper, added lace and beads the the shelf edge.
The picture with the tulips on I heat embossed in clear and then popped it in the freezer so that the embossing cracked and you get that lovely crackled glaze effect......doesn't show up though on the photo.
The metal pieces have been brushed with Treasure Gold and the uttee button has also with the silver.
