Arranged with Lustre



Oh my, talk about a match made in heaven.....Melanie's Arranged with Flowers set and Silver Lustre CS from Paper Temptress. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the look of the stripes in the paper with the flowers!!

When I opened up my envelope of papers from Paper Temptress, Patricia included a note and said that I HAD to try coloring on the Silver Lustre paper, and that it was amazing. Boy was she right! Not only do the stripes show through the coloring with a really pretty shimmer, but it's like.....watercolor paper for Copics!....the ink moves SOO WELL on it. So, if you get this stuff, I'm passing on the message...try coloring on it! It's FANTASTIC! Can you hear my excitement? I'm seriously excited!

Here's a close-up so you can see how the stripes show through the coloring. Two extra roses (the ones above and below the sentiment) and the sentiment were stamped, cut out, and popped up on foam tape.



Here's the inside where I added some more of the Silver Lustre paper and an extra rose that's also on foam tape:



...and one more bit of exciting news that Patricia said I can share with you....during the entire month of July, the entire Lustre Line will be on sale for 25% off!!! Whoo-hoooo!!!
