Kraft it Up & Cosmo Cricket - Tea for Two!!!

Hello there everyone!
This month for my Handmade by Suzanne DT kit.....Lucky me gets to play with the Cosmo Cricket "Tea for Two" range!

Anyone who knows me, knows that I love my tea!  But the layout I'm going to share today is nothing to do with tea ....at all! lol

This months challenge at Kraft it Up is a sketch challenge....with the added challenge to include layers!







Here is what I have created using "Tea for Two" from Cosmo Cricket....


I've also used some 2crafty chipboard - Cutesy Dragonflies, Flower Whispy & ATC  Elements 1 scroll ........ plus a Lil' Red Rocket spotty button & twine.



 For the Whispy Flower, I painted it red, then applied some Ranger Stickles...then smudged some Gesso here & there


 
For the 2crafty scroll & dragonflies, I have painted them first in Antique White, then inked the edges with a blending tool...and to finish it off I've lightly sprayed some TA Burnt Red glimmermist.





For the background, I've used a CW template - Mini Harlequin - & painted on some Burnt Red glimmermist.


Pics are from our trip out to Broken Hill last year, out at the Living Desert where we spotted just a few of the gorgeous Sturt's Desert Peas...aren't they just beautiful!?

Okie doke....that is all for now, but I'm hoping I will be back some time in the next week with some more shares from this gorgeous range!

Have a great weekend everyone...xx

Hi Linda, I'm your latest follower and I love the techniques used on this page. The page reminded me of our trip to the Living Desert last year but we didn't get to see these wonderful Desert Peas. Beautiful layers as well.

It seems that whenever someone uses a Lil' Red Rocket button it is the first thing that jumps out at me! Lovely photos, you've worked your layout around them beautifully xx
