Pomegranate and Toile Set

Here is my second set of 4 cards for the 2nd Sister-in-Law. I looked at the sketch challenge today and honestly it took me till late this afternoon to figure anything out! I was a little stumped...well that and I had a school band field trip with my daughter this morning, and had to take my son to a doctors appointment this afternoon.



So here is the set:










I was looking for a little more neutral set of cards for her this time. She loves fushia and greens and blues....but I also see her wear a lot of browns too. She has really gorgeous brunette hair and olive skin....I often take cues from what people wear.


I stamped the Bella Toile background stamp on watercolor paper with Brown Stazon and spent some time watercoloring it with reinkers and a chocolate chip Stampin' Write marker. Then I added the pretty patterned paper tabs, a little piercing and brads and the gorgeous satin ribbon.



Back on Friday with more...and something exciting too!


Recipe: Stamps: Bella Toile, Best Yet Ink: Brown Stazon, River Rock Paper: Chocolate Chip, River Rock, Purely Pomegranate, 2007 Holiday Mini Christmas paper...can't find my name sheet!, Watercolor paper Accessories: Scallop Square Punch, Sponge, Dimensionals, Pomegranate Satin Ribbon, Reinkers, SW Marker, Gold Brads, Piercer
