Welcome to Week 3 of my ATC Birthday Party!!! Thank you so much to all of you who have entered Artist Trading Cards in the first two weekly challenges! I have loved your kitties and chickens. Everyone's entries have just been fabulous!!! Remember that each Monday in February I'll be announcing a new theme that pertains to me or something I love, but you can still play in the previous challenges, too!! All the challenges and giveaways close on Mar. 3, 2018.
The ATC challenge theme for week 3 is:
"Adorable Teapot Collection"
I have loved tea for a long time........even before I loved coffee! Hubby and I enjoyed herbal teas (tisanes), in particular, long before they were popular. Back in those days (late 1970s - early 1980s....remember I am turning 60, so I AM that old!!!), even before we were married, we were scouring the health food sections of stores to find any herbal teas at all. Some of our favorites were among the early flavors of Celestial Seasonings: Mo's 24 and Pelican Punch. Tell me if you have ever even heard of those!!! :)
Soon, friends and family were giving me teapots.....and a small teapot collection began brewing. I have more that are not in the photos below, but these are some of my favorites.
|This was originally a bookshelf and is way too tall for my teapots, but hubby wanted them to be on display for me. <3|
I also have this little display case with a few of my kitty mugs and some of the other kitty things I have collected along the way. There's even a kitty wood-mount rubber stamp. I have a duplicate in my craft stash.
I apologize for only having one teapot ATC made to share with you. I wanted to do white embossing on one of my marker refill water backgrounds for a soft look. I used a cute and very old teapot stamp from my stash....one of the first rubber stamps my dear MIL ever gave me!
I added the sentiment and little heart from Elizabeth Craft Designs - Coffee & Tea stamp set (sadly discontinued) and the little pair of tea cups from Stamplorations - Eat, Drink, Be Merry stamp set (retiring, only a few left). I sponged Distress Ink in Wilted Violet around the edges and splattered with some water.
|Arrrrghhh.....this looks like a giant teapot-shaped spaceship!! (sigh) Kind of like Elon Musk's Tesla roadster-turned-spaceship that is in space right now with its mannequin driver. (LINK) Some people have toooooooo much money!! lol...|
So............now it is your turn to make a teapot/tea themed ATC. I would love to see a teapot image on your ATC, but a tea cup or tea bag/tag will be acceptable. Please, no coffee themes for this challenge. I love coffee, but this is TEA ONLY. :)
Not sure what an ATC is???? Have questions about the Rules and Guidelines for my ATC Challenges? The answers to all those questions may be found on THIS POST.
Thank you so much for your participation and all the super ATCs you have made so far. Remember that there will be a prize randomly awarded to one participant in each of the four weekly challenges plus one for the blog badge giveaway....5 prizes total. So be sure to post my ATC BD blog badge in your sidebar and participate in each of the weekly ATC theme challenges for the best chance of being drawn. You can enter any of the weekly challenges until March 3, 2018.
Thank you also for your sweet comments on my ATCs. I know mine are pretty basic compared to many of yours.....but I am having a lot of fun making my few to share with you. I can't wait to see your tea(pot)-themed ATCs!!!
