This week, Kim asked us to create a project for a specific family member. My assignment was to make something appropriate for a sister. Well, my youngest sister's birthday is coming up next month so that worked out pretty perfectly, didn't it? I've had this lovely digi stamp in my library that I have been wanting to color so I decided it would be a good one to use for this purpose. I don't recall who the artist was that created it so if any of you know, please tell me so I can give him/her the credit. In my opinion, this design just "begged" to be pieced. It's a ceramic or earthenware pitcher holding a bouquet of roses. Simple but elegant. I love the yellow and blue color combination seen in French Country decor so I colored the pitcher in those colors. I also colored the two uppermost blossoms 3 times so I could cut and layer them to make them look 3-dimensional. I stamped my sentiment, for which I used the Everyday Sentiments stamp set, onto a distressed tag and tied a small piece of hemp cord through the hole and popped it up on the card. I hope my sister likes it and I hope you do too.
