I used Mr Tea without the sentiment and made a Tea bag holder
DECO ART products used : Decou Page Matte, Triple Thick Gloss Glaze, Glamour Dust glitter paint in Black Ice and Sizzling Red.
Deco art Media products: Crackle paste, Fluid acrylics in Cobalt Turquoise Hue and Raw Umber.
Americana Gesso, Traditions Acrylic in ultramarine blue.
The tea bag holder is a wooden do it yourself package, so I glued it together and gessoed it. Next was a layer of ulramarine blue to show up in the cracks. Next I addded crackle paste and when dry I used the Cobalt Turquoise Hue to paint it. When dry I added a glaze of Raw Umber Media Fluid to age it a bit.
I coloured Mr Tea using my Polychromos and cut him out. Decou pages him on the teapot and tried to get the cracks in the image (did not work out as planned). When the Decou Page was dry I added 2 more layers to seal it. Left it to dry and added the card symbols using glitter paint. Wrote a senti on the back of the teapot and finished the piece with 2 layers of Triple Thick Gloss Glaze for both protection and shine.
Hope to see you in the challenge
