Impressionist sisters


I have found these slightly odd sisters in my Russian impressionists postcard book... They could be twins if it wasn't for the size difference. I'm not sure if they are pictured on horseback - the crop is there, but where is the horse? - or making their way through an equally invisible crowd.

All things considered, it seemed best to take the focus away from the sisters and concentrate on the harmonic surroundings.

I made two flowers using knitting yarn and tiny gold glass beads.

This punch is one of my favourite crafting tools. Its pattern, centered around a small heart, and the Organza ribbon and bow with blue diamond cut teardrop add a "dusting of sugar" to the card.
