To Honor Ms. Potter


They had all decided that they would host a wonderful Tea Party in honor of the woman who gave them human like qualities.
"Here's to our heroine Beatrix Potter. She changed how the humans viewed us and gave us dignity and clothing."

Wow, what a wonderful creation. Thank you for visiting my blog and your lovely comments.

I didn't use papers, I stamped an image onto the card and coloured with brush markers and then stamped a second image and cut the petals and coloured those with brush markers, but am pleased with the results.

Great blog by the way!!

Love the gesture and expression of the hippo and all the details in the outfits. What fun!!!

Vanessa, this is truly wonderful! The characters are all so much fun (that shy hippo is my favorite, though it's really hard to pick only one!) I love the way they all hold their teacups so delicately, and the colors you used, on the animals, their outfits, everything. Fantastic!

I LOVE all these fab animals and their delightful expressions. I tried to pick a favorite, but kept changing my mind. They are all great.

I, too, love it. I think my favorite character is the goofy giraffe and his spotty spots. So cool.
