This photo was inspired by the sketch over at Inspired by Stamping. I stamped the Clearly Besotted flowers in Versafine Onyx Black ink, then watercoloured them with Inktense pencils, using my Wink of Stella pen instead of a normal paintbrush so they’d be sparkly rather than plain. You can see this a little better in the photo below, although I found it really hard to photograph as it was a very dull day here!
After several failed attempts at making a background, I finally settled on one created with Inktense pencils, colouring through an Imagination Crafts stencil in the Violet pencil then filling in the gaps in a green colour. The greeting was a combination of a diecut word (again, Clearly Besotted) cut from plain white card, coloured with Violet Promarker then given a touch of Wink of Stella again, and the word “With” (by Elzybells) stamped in Violet Promarker. See my previous post for the warning about stamping with Promarkers! I’m also entering this into the challenge over at Simon Says Stamp where the theme is “Sparkle and Shine”.
