du2ds-wings

The challenge for DU2DS this week is “Things with Wings“, and since I was working on a teapot template this past week, I thought that I might as well incorporate it into the challenge. This project was easy to make once I had the template down (this template will be one of the new releases in my site, Gem’s Cottage,  tomorrow!). Pink card stock for the main teapot base is from The Paper Company, Tinted Dawn; the patterned paper (I just love it!) is from Making Memories, Noteworthy Audrey; pink flowers with brads from Making Memories; blue butterflies are from Simple Sampler, recolored with Prisma Color Pencils and glittered. So if it was easy, what took me so long?  Well, I actually started with a different colored cardstock (a lovely shade of purple), put some flowers and the butterflies – it didn’t work, so set it aside. Next day, undid the flowers and butterflies, tore off the background paper, put different paper, etc, etc – still didn’t work.  The next day, same thing, until I told myself: stop working on it and choose another color scheme instead! This pink one was done in less than an hour! *Sigh* Some days, I really can’t get purple right, LOL! Here’s how the final purple teapot looks like – I think it’s okay – but I’m still not that happy with it!

You’ll see the apps installed under ‘Installed Apps.

We have a black November for you to enjoy good sale.
The format is therefore not as Android-friendly as for
instance the ZIP or TAR file types.
