Jane presents Fairy Tea Party by Katerina Koukiotis

Today is my day to showcase and image from Sweet Pea Stamps and I have chosen to work with the beautiful image Fairy Tea Party by Katerina Koukiotis which is available from the Sweet Pea Store in both rubber and digi.

Time to make another of my tea bag holders which I so love giving as gifts :)   I started by cutting all my sections for the tea box holder from a pattern I made.  I then covered the box with some awesome hand made paper a friend brought me back from her holidays, the colours were just perfect for the digi I had coloured earlier.  Before attaching the hand made paper I embossed it with a Spellbinders embossing folder, not a deep embossing as the paper is very soft and did not want to hold the embossing well.
Next I went to town with lots of die cuts.  The image was mounted on turqouise card, the same card the box was made from and also some matt gold card.  I added one of the a Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 4pk - Borders to one side and a Spellbinders Les Papillions 2 butterfly. Another of these butterflies was added to the back of the box, and in the centre of each butterfly I add a small turquoise butterfly gem.  For the label I used Spellbinder Ornamental Tag 1 and added another butterfly gem.  For the swirls I added around the box I used Spellbinders Floral Flourishes.  All the die cuts were cut using the same turquoise card I used for the box and the matt gold paper which I glued on one side, this gave me die cuts which matched the box both from the front and the back sides.  A little gold bronzing powder was added to the top rim of the box and there we go, all done.
