Every Inchie Monday Tea



After scouring my stamp collection this is the smallest Teapot I could lay my hands on. I've already been over and looked at the other entrants art and I'm so impressed that they all fit their art on the inchie, so far I'm the only one hanging over the edges. 
This is a Prima stamp set that I have had for quite a few years. I was going for a Damask like background not to loud to over shadow the Teapot. I embossed the Teapot with Stampin' Up Pewter embossing powder, fussy cut it out, embossed the clock with Stampin' Up Early Expresso embossing powder, fussy cut it and popped it up with a dimensional. 
The title for my Inchie is Tea Time. The way the clock looks to me it's 11:50 am, In Western America we call that lunch time. In Britain I don't think they have tea until late afternoon. When I mark that destination off my Bucket List I'll come back and let you know when the correct time for Tea is.

Happy Creating--

Woohoo! What a wonderful teapot:-) afternoon tea time is a moveable event, if it's just the cup of tea then 3 pm onwards but if you are having a "cream tea" where you would have a scone/jam/clotted cream then you'd be no later than 4.30 - for " high tea" where you have more to eat then it's more like 4.40/6.30 - these are probably more Scottish hours but .....

My tea time is each evening after I am finally finished with all my "chores" for the day. I love your teapot inchie :)

Great inchie and we all hang over the edge at some point. I had to cut my teapot in half, or I would have needed two inchies.

Neat that you had a tea pot stamp and I don't think going over the edges every now and then is a problem - I think we've all done it!
