Daffodils in a Teapot

For my Sparkle N Sprinkle New Reveal post, please scroll down, or click here.

It's time for a new challenge from Time4Scrap and the theme is "Be Mine".  The sponsors are Beccy's Place and Dilly Beans.

 I've gone more of an un-traditional route and chosen the Daffodils in a Teapot digi image from Beccy's Place.  Copic markers were used to color this image and a Spica glitten pen was used for some highlights.

I decided to create my background using the wax paper resist technique.  But instead of crumpling up the wax paper, I die cut a piece of wax paper with the Quatrefoil cutting plate by Taylored Expressions.  Before ironing, I brayered Distress Ink (Antique Linen) onto one of the pieces of glossy card and left the other white.  Next I ironed the die cut wax paper and then added more Distress Ink (Dusty Concord) with a brayer to the cardstock covered with Antique Linen.

For the sentiment, I stamped the heart using a Unity Stamp rubber stamp with Squeezed Lemonade and stamped directly on top of the heart my sentiment from CC Designs with Dusty Concord and heat embossed with Clear embossing powder.  After fussy cutting it out, I pop dotted it onto my background.

Be sure to visit the blog and check out what the rest of the team has created.  You have two weeks to upload your project.
