Cheery Cherry Tea, anyone?

This must be one of the cheeriest teapots I've seen.... it's Cherry Teapot, from StretchNBubbles...

 Ingredients: Cardstock - Terra Nova, Cre8tiv; Paper - magazines freebie; Stardust Pens - Sakura; Thread - DMC; Organza ribbon; Pearl Head Pin; fabric blossom.

I coloured the image with stardust pens, and an Aquash water brush/pen.  I love the watercolour effect with those waterpens! After matting the image on olive green, I zig zag stitched by hand to add some detail.  I then added it to another matt of olve green and doily printed paper. I pierced the corner to thread a ribbon through, and tied finished with a bow around a pearl headed pin dressing a tin ywee white fabric blossom...

Cherry Teapot is entered into the challenge at The Paper Variety - #22 Stitching
