Cas-ual Fridays Bling, Pearls and Glitter

I am like a magpie, drawn to anything sparkly, so when this Cas-ual Friday challenge was announced I just had to play along. The only problem was what to pick, Glitter, Gems or Pearls????? Well you guessed it I couldn't choose and so used all three!


Close up of flower


The Chearful flower 4160K from Penny Black  was stamped onto lilac cardstock twice with memento lilac posies ink and the leaves onto white card with memento cottage Ivy ink.  The bottom flower was cut out and then coloured with copic V06 and the remaining flower given shading with copics V06; V15  & V12  and cut out. Now to the glitter.... I added rock candy distress stickles with my finger to the bottom flower  and stardust stickles to parts of the petal on the top flower, the centre was then glittered with Grapz and purple gems added around the edge.  The leaves were cut out and coloured with Copics G94 & YG67 curled slightly and glued onto white card (which had been dry embossed around the edge and a fine line drawn with a black marker Pen)....but wait I haven't used any peals yet! Not a problem, I love this beautiful sentiment from Penny Black Friendship 4176K, and it fits perfectly in the other corner of my card to add balance to the flower...and guess what I can use the pearls to add a dotted line at the end of the sentiment!


Well I just had to add a matching envelope for this card, don't forget the challenge to decorate an envelope for Penny Black runs until tomorrow night. coloured with prisma pencils and liquid pearls and glitter added.

Thanks for visiting and all your lovely comments, they really make my day!
