More Spring Flowers!!


Here is another Flower Birthday themed card for the Hero Arts challenge, I decided to dust off an old stamp from the Sweet Threads set.  I have stamped with distressed markers and then water coloured.  I have noticed lots of cards lately made using a Wink of Stella pen to add some sparkle.  I haven't yet got one (although its on my wishlist) but I do have a Sakura glitter gel pen so I have added some sparkle to the pink flower.





Have a great Sunday.

This is such a gorgeous card, Sally! I love the colours of the pretty flowers and all the beautiful sparkle! Brilliant masking too! I can't believe mid term is just about over:( Hope you enjoyed your time off!

Gorgeous card Sally, and just the colour palette that I've currently got in my head too! T purchased a wink of stella pen but I find that it gives a grey tinge to whatever I colour. I feel that I have spoilt a couple of cards by using it. I didn't show them on my blog and one ended up in the bin. Your Sakura pen seems to just add lovely sparkle so I wouldn't rush to buy the other one... but thats just my thoughts of course! Hope you had a good week, its back to the coal face tomorrow! Jo x

Lovely flower card, Sally! I don't have a wink of Stella pen either and the Sakura one works just fine for me. You masked these flowers perfectly!

It's a really grey day here so far, Sally, so this is just what I needed to see - what a beautiful spring mix!

What a gorgeous card, Sally! I love your big, beautiful flowers! And the bit of shimmer looks fab!

Dotty mentioned the gray tinge of the Wink of Stella Pen - make sure if you get one, you watch Jennifer McGuire's and Kristina Werner's videos on how to use it. If you push on the sides more then once (when you first get it) the gray-ish color happens. If you only do that once to get it flowing, it won't happen. I love mine!!
