Sister...

Hi.
Today I am sharing my second Clearly Besotted Stamps Teaser Time card. This one features a gorgeous floral stamp from a new 3 x 4 set called 'To You With Love'. 
Sister With Love by Lucy Abrams
To make my card, I white embossed the flower on some Hero Arts Letterpress Paper, then softly coloured with my Gansai Tambi paints. I flicked the panel with more paint for a rustic look, then added stitching to one side once dry. Next, I stamped the 'with love' sentiment from To You With Love, then I adhered the panel to a Hero Arts notecard. I stamped the 'Sister' sentiment from Sugar and Spice onto more white card (the MISTI allowed me to stamp it twice for a super black finish) then die cut with the coordinating die. Finally, I adhered this to the card with foam tape and embellished with sequins from my XOXO Shaker Selection.

This is absolutely STUNNING Lucy! ( I am thinking this would also be a beautiful sympathy card!) What a beautiful but versatile image???

Beautifully delicate, Lucy. Love the combo with the dotted sentiments, they work beautifully together and even though it's black the card is still so pretty x

One of my all-time favorite cards, Lucy! Wishing I had a sister die as that's one I could really use. Will have to save up & get it.

WOW! Love the polka dotted paper for your die cut! It softens the dark color. Good touch! It really pops above the softness of the gorgeous watercolor! I can see where the MISTI would come in handy here. Thanks!!!

Yesterday, May 28th was my sister's birthday. I would have loved to have given her a card like yours. That Sister sentiment/die just blows me out of the water and I love that you were able to stamp it twice with the Misti to get that bolder colour. Note to self: Get that stamp set and a Misti........... Thanks for sharing your wonderful talents.
