Sparkly Flowers

I made this card for this week's SKETCH CHALLENGE on SCS! Thank you to AmyR who designed the awesome sketch.

I stamped the image in Palette Noir and colored it in with my Copic markers. I did lots of blending. My color inspiration was a piece of patterned by BoBunny. Once I was done with most of the card and the coloring, I couldn't seem to fit the paper in the card! *grumble* It matches the ribbon too! *sigh*

I added a piece of RIC RAC STICKY TAPE to two of the corners and dusted it with Dazzling Diamonds. I think it added a nice, non-overpowering dazzle. :) The splatters on the focal image were done by holding my Copic marker and blasting it with my air art tool (SU). THAT was a challenge trying to stay coordinated enough to do it, but it worked! :) YAY! I added a few "splats" of blush blossom to look like the flowers were spraying a bit of pollen.

Stamps: Penny black image and sentiment, SU BG, CHF BG

Ink: Palette Noir, white craft, blue bayou

Paper: soft sky, blush blossom, blue bayou, watercolor paper

Accessories: BoBunny ribbon, STICKY RIC RAC, Spica glitter pen, RED LINE boosters, Nestabilities, air art tool, sponge, white EP
