CCT family: 'sister'

CCT this week is 'a family affair' so mine is a card for my sister (always handy when you have 3 :) )

Been dying to use some more of my Ketto stamps from Stamping bella and these 2 looked like they could be sisters and fitted the layout I had in mind.


  • Images: 'Sake Ketto' & 'Washabi Ketto' stamps from Stamping Bella. 'lots of hugs' from woodware sentiment set 'jane's script'
  • Colouring: Copics with a bit of paper piercing on little 'Sake Ketto' and Clear stardust Sakura pen on their hairpins and bits of clothes so it does sparkle a bit when it catches the light. Sponged edges of the circles with 'antique linen' distress ink to tone in with the background DP and base card which is actually cream colour
  • DP: Basic Grey 'Ambrosia' really love the reads and oranges in this pad and think some of the papers have slight oriental feel to them
  • Others: petite scallop circle nesties, 'sisters' sizzix die, MS border punch. black ribbon trim and various adhesive gems - 1 in centre of flower and lots of mini ones in their hair!


Haven't had a chance to visit a lot of blogs yet this week, will try to do that today. Also got my little DT packet off Toodles & Binks yesterday but had to go work so am itching to go use them today too as they are really cute (you can see them over on Toodles & Binks blog).

Have a good day.
