smARTworks - Birthday Wishes

I heard it was a specail day for Susan Trask, owner of smARTworks stamps a while ago. Her birthday was at the end of October, so I decided to make and send her some birthday wishes!!
I stamped this teapot from the Teapot Trio set onto watercolor paper with Archivers black ink so that I could watercolor it. I used Rose Red ink to color the hearts and Wild Wasabi for the edge of the plate, teapot and napkin. I did some shading with Buckaroo Blue and River Rock. This image was a LOT OF FUN to paint.
I decided to use my coluzzle to cut out the image and then made a few spots to feed some black organdy ribbon through. I used a piece of this amazing paper from Basic Grey! I love it and it matches the Wild Wasabi perfectly. Finally, I decided to make a different sentiment. See those letters...they are a great Dollar Store find!! Yup, just one little ole dollar and I use them all the time!! Anyway, I stamped the letters, cut them, and attached them around the circle edge.
Well, I hope it brought nice birthday wishes to Susan!!
