Tea Party Number 3

Today I have the third installation of the Nail Challenge Collaborative's tea party.  This is my inspiration.


Isn't it lovely?  If I was rich, I would collect tea pots, and this would be in my collection!  Here is what I came up with.

Not as lovely as the tea pot, but not too bad.

Started with three coats of China Glaze Keep Calm, Paint On.  Almost spot on for the color of the pot.  Then I double stamped with DRK-B, Julep Daria and Finger Paints Rockin' Gunmetal.

Next came the silver plate.  Cannibalized my jewelry supplies again!  This are some oval jump rings.  After attaching them with top coat, I filled them with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Silver Sweep. 

It was too silver for me, so I added some Finger Paints Rockin' Gunmetal and added some swirlies around it to try and recreate the look.

It wasn't too bad, but it was hard to distinguse from the stamping, so I added more detail with Julep Daria and a tiny detail brush.

Not awesome, but not bad either.  I had fun with it!  Can't wait to show you the next one though!  I swear I could do a another whole month with this theme, but we have something different coming up in September  Thanks for looking and commenting!  Don't forget to go give the others some tea party love!
