RAK for a Peach of a Pair

This card was created as a RAK for a special lady, Nicole Seitler, who designed my blog banner. She and her hubby sent me detailed instructions and then when it was still overwhelming, they actually installed the banner and watermark for me. That makes them a Peach of a Pair, so I’m taking some creative license and making them this RAK using a pear stamp from Lockhart stamps. The image is stamped on the fabulous Fabriano paper from our own new store, Flourishes, LLC , then watercolored. I used the wonderful Prisma color pencils to add the brightness and punch. The striped paper and background are from Basic Grey, Blitzen series. I know this was last year’s Christmas papers, but the unusual color combination made my heart sing. I am so NOT afraid of color. The rest of the card was simple, I incorporated Stampin’ Up! solid papers, Marigold and Cranberry Crisp (In colors 2007) and ribbon.

I hope that Nicole and hubby will enjoy this RAK, hope she hasn’t looked here just yet!

I invite you to visit our store, Flourishes, LLC, soon. It does not have all the bells and whistles yet, but keep watching for really BIG NEW real soon. We have some wonderful things that we will be revealing. My very dear friends and stampers, Nancy Kirk, Sharon Doolittle and I are working to stock the store with our favorite goodies. The store is open, in the “Paperie” you will find Fabriano card sets and the new line of Basic Grey papers, Perhaps, Stella Ruby, Scarlet Letter and LilyKate as well as the ribbons that coordinate with that line. We have a nice selection of May Art ribbons in stock. We are awaiting the arrival of Palette Hybrid Inks and Marvy Punches. Yes you read that correctly, we will be carrying the much coveted punches, circles, squares, ovals, rectangles and scalloped ones as well.
