A cup fit for a Red Queen?




Once more and in line with my Alice in Wonderland theme this cup was made at our retreat in Skipton as one of our projects. The template for making these teacups came from Ann Woods Blog which has loads of other inspiring creations.

The template was cut out from recycled cereal boxes which were reinforced with strips of paper and PVA glue to make papier mache (of a type).  The teacup was allowed to dry completely.

I painted mine with a few coats of matt Dylusions paint and then decorated with a gold pen and some Dew Drops.  The inside was sprayed with antique gold shimmer mist to give it a sheen.  The hearts are cut from pink card using a heart Nestabilities die and stuck in place, followed by a coat of Stickles diamond glitter glue.






This one is displayed on an old porcelain saucer which I didn't make !!

Messy to make but really satisfying once complete.
