Sisters Together Forever

Hi!

Last night I decided to work on a layout incorporating a photograph of 4 of my nieces. The photo was taken of them while they were at the races, so they were all glammed up. They are such beautiful girls. The layout started off as an 8x8 layout:



It didn't look quite finished though, so I decided to incorporate it into a 12x12 layout.



Here's a close up of the top left hand corner. I clear embossed the En Francais BG stamp to give the page a little more elegance. Unfortunately it's a bit hard to see in the photo.



I wanted to colour the large flower from the Pretties Kit, but I don't have a Melon Mambo reinker. Instead I used my Aqua Painter to watercolour the flower. It gives a bit of a softer look and you can be a bit more selective about how you colour the flower and give it highlights. It's a bit brighter in real life than the photo shows.

Stamps: En Francais Background, Together Forever
Ink: Versamark, Black Stazon, Melon Mambo
Card Stock: Basic Black, Melon Mambo, Whisper White Textured
Other: Scallop Edge Punch, Melon Mambo 1/2" Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon, White Signo Gel Pen, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Clear Embossing Powder, Mini Glue Dots, and Flower, Pearl, Rhinestone Brads, Beads and Hat Pins from the Pretties Kit.

Catch you later,

Tina
