A little bit of colouring

Today I have made a card with a recently acquired stamp set from Spellbinders called loves me, loves me not. I stamped it in the corner of a piece of Strathmore Toned Gray paper. I then proceeded to colour it with my Polychromos.

You can't see it on the photo but I went over the stamped outline with a Gelly Roll sparkle pen in green on the leaves and stalks and in purple on the flowers. It does have a lovely sparkle when moved in the light. I blended some white pencil behind the flowers and some weathered wood distress ink around the edges of the paper, finishing off with a few gina k. crystalline drops. I heat embossed the Hello in white.

I am sorry you can't see the sparkle as it makes all the difference on the finished card.

It's a lovely card! And I can see the drops, not the sparkle indeed, however I can imagine how it looks like in real....
