Meet Rare Magazine. I love it. It's published here in Austin, and the paper and the images are usually very fetching. I would never be able to throw it away after I've read it, so here's a simple, three minute card with the issue with my favorite cover ever.
This gorgeous image is the work of a local artist - Nishi Kumar, originally from India. She adores Degas, and it shows. It graces the cover of the January edition of Rare. The flower lower left is mine - it's the large flower from Fifth Avenue Floral, stamped in white craft ink and embossed with white detail embossing powder.After I embossed the flower I cut it out. Then I ripped off the cover to use in another project, and look what I found. Ooh. I'm gonna need that nice chocolatey brown and the vanilla scallop, aren't I?I actually had to do some creative cutting and get two pieces to avoid the bride image. I pieced them together under the flower and you'd never know! :)
The greeting is stamped on one of Stampin' Up!'s new Canvas Cuts pieces.
Don't throw that magazine away. You never know what I'll do next...
