Our Daily Bread 2nd Anniversary Challenge: Day two: china

The "contemporary" gift for the second anniversary is CHINA. ODB has an Inspiration Challenge that involves "CHINA" today. I have done a teapot and cup/saucer. The teapot is done in Iris Folding and the cup/saucer is cut out and then a photo of the pancy print behind it. The pattern was created by Ingrid from New Zealand. I layered Nesties fro the sentiment (computer generated) and used a piece of vellum to make the tea-bag pocket. I outlined the pot and c/s with a copic marker and used a gold Uni-Ball pin around the c/s, to reflect the gold rim on so many china pieces. Purple is my favorite color, so I enjoyed using lots of it here. The piece is rather large at 7.25" X 7.25". I think I may frame it without glass and allow the recepient to hang it in her kitchen and replace the teabag whenever she wants to.

Thanks for stopping by. God bless your day!
