Make A Wish

Hello there, today I have a card to share using the beautiful Make A Wish stamp set from Clearly Besotted. Aren't those flowers stunning? Inspired by Jenny (owner of Clearly Besotted) and Steph, I decided to try colouring the flowers with colour pencils. I definitely need more practice using pencils but I did enjoy colouring this image in, even if it did take ages! :)

I started off by stamping the flowers on to some Strathmore Toned Grey Mixed Media Paper with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then coloured the flowers with Polychromos Pencils plus the white  Luminance pencil. The colours I used were mainly from the 60 pencil set but I did buy some open stock of warm greys, which I used on the flower petals. The colours I used are listed below the supplies section.
I cut the panel down and adhered it to a black A2 card base with ATG. The sentiment, from the Tiny Type set, was stamped on to more black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder, heat set and cut this in to a strip. This was added to the card with foam tape. To finish off, I added three Sparkling Clear sequins.

I love these larger floral images from Clearly Besotted. I love that they fill a whole card. You just need to add a sentiment and you are good to go! Thanks so much for visiting me today. I hope you have a fabulous weekend!
