Thinking of You

Hello!!

I can't believe that it's almost 2016!!! With some good news i received yesterday, it feels like my Christmas vacation between semesters has just started!! Luckily the new semester dosen;t start until the 11th so i still have some time to savor my free time (ok not really free time, i still have to work and do my internship, but no school work to worry about for a little bit longer!!)

Today i'm sharing a card that features Crafter's Companions new Sparkle Pens! I've been playing with them and figuring how the best way to use them and boy they are fun to use!! You can use them to color directly on your paper or you can use water to dilute the ink a little.

I started by stamping the gorgeous flower from the Stamp It Australia Floral Fancies stamp set, all over a piece of CC's water color paper. Then i used a clear block and scribbled the Harvest Moon Sparkle Pen. With a water brush i picked up the ink from the block and started color the flowers.

Before the flowers were dry i applied the Sparkle Pen directly to the flower. This allowed the ink to fan out, reacting to the water in a nice watercolor look. I did this with the rest of the flowers using Red Berry and Cosmos. For the leaves i used Olive Jade.

For a sentiment i cut a strip of white card stock and stamped the Thinking of You sentiment from the Stamp It Australia Dreamy Daisies stamp set. When my flower panel was dry i added it to a white card base and then adhered the sentiment trip over it with foam tape. Last i added a few black enamel dots to my card.
