It's a Fairy Fun Friday!

I swear there are 3 Fridays in a week!!!
It only seems like yesterday that I posted LAST Friday's sample.
Where DOES the time go?
This week's challenge is a colour one, using this picture as your guide.


Here's my interpretation......

I wanted to use this teapot and 'mug' so much for this challenge.
I know it's very similar in a way to the image, but it's deliberate. I 'saw' this layout straight away and decided to go with it. This tea set is SO adaptable. (Available to purchase HERE). The 'mug' started out as a cup. I just stretched it to make it longer. That's the beauty of digi images, you can squeeze 'em, stretch 'em, add bits, take bits off etc. When I use this image again, I think I'll make my teapot into a coffee pot. The possibilities are endless.
Hop on over to the Fairy Fun Fridays blog to see what the other DT members have created. They have done an amazing job again this week.

Thanks for calling by Viv xxx

I really love this card, Viv. It is so striking in its simplicity! Beautiful the way you just have one layer over the kraft and your manipulation of the digital image was brilliant. That DP you used is perfect too! You totally ROCKED this challenge!
