{TAC} We love Nina Brackett!

Today a few of us on the Totally Awesome Chicks design team are celebrating the great images by Nina Brackett.  I got some of her sets while at our last annual convention last June in Wichita, KS and even purchased a couple more before The Angel Company closed.   I'm using her set called Dotted Peony and TAC's Uptown Girl paper.

I seen a sketch design recently and felt this was perfect for my card! And my Claret PH ink matched wonderfully with the paper!  I was surprised when I took the photo that the black ribbons drooped on the right side!  Darn! I did manage to straighten them a bit with my thumbnail...

Here you can see the Stardust Clear Gel pen on the flower.  You can almost see the dimension of the flower.  I used a "Paper Shaper" to gently round the flower then I used some foam mounting tape to attach the flower.

LOVE Nina Brackett's images. Your card is darling (I have a huge stash of that patterned paper). FYI, Nina's TAC images were picked up by the Unity Co, so those of us who didn't manage to buy them from TAC will have a second chance. Yayyy Nina!!! In fact there are some matching dies for some of her stamp sets.
