Sisters



Here's another layout I created over the weekend.  This was a lot of fun!

I used five shades of CTMH dye inks (Topiary, Sweet Leaf, Sky, Pacifica, and Lagoon) and a rubber brayer to create the background.  Then I added the stenciled flowers using black MFT dye ink.  I used a gold Wink of Stella pen to add some gold accents to the flowers.

Then I added some more stenciling using some Delicata ink.  I managed to smudge my white cardstock during all the inky fun, so I had to cut that down and mount it on another piece of cardstock.  For some extra definition, I added a strip of black cardstock and stitched it down with some gold thread.



The thickers are some of my all time favorites and I really only have this bright green set left.  They are still around because the color doesn't go with everything, but here I altered them, coloring them with a black Copic marker.  They're just colored on the top, the green still shows on the dies, but they work with the greens in this layout.

This was a really fun one to create!  Thanks for stopping by!
