Here's a second entry, a little more shabby, for this week's Shabby Tea Room Birthday Bash celebration: "Party Time". Do you think these 2 had a little too much party?
A sweet friend recently sent me several of these older Stampa Rosa House Mouse stamps dated 1997, and this is the first inking of this one for me. I colored it with colored pencils, making the cupcake like our oldest son David used to request his birthday cakes, with strawberry or cherry icing. To shabby it up a bit I added a doily cut in halves, some crinkled hand-dyed seam binding and a ribbon and button. Since the coloring was pretty pastel, I used pale pink, blue and green to frame it out.
