all of pink paislee's "parisian anthology" products featured in this month's pixie kit, FLORIBUNDA, are specially made to be mistable, inkable, and generally able to be custom-colored to exactly the right shade one might need. ...but... they also look pretty fabulous right out of the box!
i love the funky fabulous mixed font of the gorgeous corrugated alphas. they're a great size, too: big enough to use on 12x12 layouts...but not so huge they can't fit on a good-sized card. (this one's roughly 6x8") i think they look incredibly elegant on the tone-on-tone "lovely lace" paper. i swapped out the letter "O" in favor of one of the tim holtz ornate plates from the kit. it was already a very pretty distressed bronze metal, but i used a few swipes of copper alcohol ink to make it even more posh!
i cut away the center of the intricate frame element from the "lovely lace" paper and backed it with a bit of floral goodness from pink paislee's "sweetness" line, and finished the whole thing off with some glitz rub-ons. one of my favorite things about rub-ons is how easily adaptable they are: i cut apart the "ADORE" definition to use the word in my title and the meaning inside my focal-point frame, and instantly got twice as much mileage from it. cha-ching! :)
if you L♥O♥V♥E gorgeous art supplies and ♥ADORE♥ a good value, the FLORIBUNDA kit is a must-have item for you this march! :)
