Here is a photo of the collection.
The colour palette is very similar to Graphic 45 Gilded Lily Collection, although this range is more English Victorian in theme and Gilded Lily more French Rococo.
I then glued this on top of the 12 x 12 paper.
The teapot started life as Blue Fern Studios Tea Medley chipboard. I then cut off the teacups and used a variety of techniques to bring the chipboard to life. I used pearl wands, embossing powders, paper.
The cherries are glazed with Glossy Accents and I used Tim Holtz stickles and rock candy glitter for the spoonful of sugar. .
The hot air balloon was cut from one of the papers and I added
flowers and a teacup from the Tea Medley chipboard. I attached this with paper covered wire tinted with DI. The cute children were cut from another sheet and stuck on the teapot with PVA glue.
I added some pearl swirls and heat embossed die cut swirls to compliment the chipboard swirls.
The finishing touch was the mini tea-bags, which I created from vellum, string and embossing powders for the tea and staples.

I was inspired by these Challenges:
