Meet Constance

Here's a great image from artist Nikki Burnette of Sweet Pea Stamps named Constance (Plate #149). Isn't she a beauty? I just love her expression. I had this wonderful fall color paper that was warm browns on the outside and oranges inside, so I colored her up with gorgeous reds and deep oranges. Then I highlighted the card with some luxurious embroidered paisley that I bought in Turkey. It's a rich orange with luscious brown sequins inside. YUM!I cut the outside edge of the card to match the shape of the paisley and let the inside coloring of the cardstock show. I added a wonderful sentiment "The eyes indicate the antiquity of the soul." (Ralph Waldo Emerson) and used a couple of great flower embellishments from All My Memories to add one extra touch. The die cut used on this card is a new shape that Sizzix is selling. Be sure to check out all of Nikki's stamps (click here). I just love this image, and her new sheet that just came out, OH, I can't WAIT to get my hands on those. That little witch (Adrianna)--you are SO gonna see a card with her soon!!
