Welcome to another week of CASE-ing the Catty.

We are taking our inspiration from the Sale-a-bration Brochure again this week. Don't forget that you get to choose a FREE item from this brochure, when you make a purchase of $90 or more between now and 31 March 2019. If you don't have your own copy of the Occasions Catalogue and Sale-a-bration brochure yet, then leave your details on the Free Catalogues page on my blog and I'd be happy to pop one in the mail for you.
I'm taking my inspiration from the card above on the left, from page 17 of the Sale-a-bration brochure, using the Tea Together stamp set. The coordinating Tea Time Framelits Dies are FREE to you with a $180 order or party sales.
The sample uses no-line watering colouring, so I decided to try out this technique and I haven't water coloured for ages. I stamped the tea pot in Balmy Blue ink (stamped off first) onto water colour paper and then used the Aquapainter to add layers of colour.
The embellishments on my card have covered up a lot of the tea pot, so this is a photo of it naked! I still like a fairly defined edge on the image, so I tried not to put too much water over it. When it was dry, I cropped the tea pot with the coordinating framelit die.
My 12.5cm square card base is in Very Vanilla thick card stock and I dry embossed the front with the Subtle Dynamic embossing folder for a lovely texture. The centre panel of butterfly designer paper is from the Tea Room Specialty Designer Paper pack and it has been layered on to Rich Razzleberry card stock. I adhered the retired Lacy Doily towards the left side and then popped up the die cut tea pot over the top. The Mother's Day greeting from the Tea Together stamp set was layered onto a scalloped oval in Rich Razzleberry. I used markers to colour the rose before stamping and water colouring. I found the marker ink melted away more than the stamp pad ink, leaving very few of the internal lines on the image. However, it does result in a lovely soft result. I added some copper trimmed vanilla ribbon until the rose that was also popped up.
For the inside I have mat of Rich Razzleberry for the writing panel with a strip of Rich Razzleberry striped paper at the bottom. I have added another of the water coloured roses to the bottom corner. The lovely sentiment also from the Tea Together stamp set was stamped in the centre in Rich Razzleberry ink.
