Sweet November Sneaks - Caladium

Hello! I am thrilled to get to introduce you to Caladium today! She is another wonderful member of the new Twisted Sisters line from Sweet November stamps (they will be available at All That Scraps on Monday the 6th at 10:30 EST)! There was something about Caladium that made me think old fashioned and vintage-y (maybe it was her amazing bustle dress!) so I decided to color her like she was an old time photo and pair her with papers that had an "old" feel to me.

The Details:
Stamps: Caladium - Sweet November, Amy R Big Words Sentiments and Handy Addition Sentiments - all from All That Scraps
Paper: Graphic 45 (Gear Print), My Minds Eye (Flocked Harlequin), Black and White Cardstock (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Old Photo, Tea Stain and Walnut Distress Inks
Copics:
E30,E31,E34,E35,E37,E39,E18,E59,Y000,Y11
Misc: EK Success Photo Corner Punch


You can see more cards made with the Beautiful Caldium by visiting the blogs of Amy, Rachel and Rinne. Amy, their creator, always has Fabulous candy to celebrate the release, so be sure to stop there!

Hi Traci. WOW, I love your take on her. The sepia works soooo good with her. I love, love her bustle so you are right, she needs to be in an old picture. It always amazes me how you see her done one way and you think WOW, thats perfect and then you see anothers take on it and you think WOW, this is perfect. Well, I love it! lol...Does that make any sence? Hugs, Lisa g
