I just printed these right out of the package without separating them. The ink is just some gold that I happened to have on hand and the images aren't perfect. I am thinking that they would be nice for wall boarders and maybe even on furniture. Anyway, I thought that you might be interested.
I heard Tessie tossing things around in the workroom and went in to see what she was doing after I finished stamping. It seems that she has already started scavenging for things to go in the tea shop.
I pretty much ignored her until I heard her back in the tea shop. I went to look and she was coming in the door with the tiered tea stand and she was almost crumpled under the weight of a little metal tin that I had decorated with Fimo, liquid Fimo and raised stickers as an experiment.
A while ago, I got a new extractor gun and went wild with it. I was putting poly clay on anything that would hold still. This little cheapo tin came with mints in it. I threw away the mints....They tasted worse than some of Tessie's teas.
I stuck the sticker to the center of the top and then proceeded to fill in the background with snakes of clay. The teapot is a layered sticker and the pot itself sticks up further than the rest of the pot. The handle and spout is on a second raised layer and the third layer is below that. It is plain. After I covered the whole background, I put liquid Fimo on the pot itself to protect it. Then I baked it as usual. It worked pretty well.....
Tessie saw it, grabbed it and announced that I was going to have to make her a sign for the shop with the same technique.
I told her that I had no idea where the rest of the stickers were from the package. They were another Michael's find from the dollar bins.
She tilted her head back, looked down the end of her nose the way she does when someone is an annoyance and said, "Maybe you don't. I do!"
She promptly went to the cabinet where I keep the poly clay supplies and pulled out the seventh drawer down. I have the horrible feeling that she is hiding a
photographic memory and has everything that I own cataloged in her head.
Before I could blink, she was at the door of the teashop with the package.
She is now trying to decide which tea pot will go on the sign. She has a choice of four......This could take a while. The more choices, the harder for her to choose.
I personally, am not going to stand and wait for her to make up her mind. You can if you want.....
See you tomorrow.
