Sparkly Flowers with Michele!

Hi friends - welcome back to another little creation for Prickley Pear Stamps! This time I'm using one of their red rubber images - Black Eye Susan...and to spice up my life...and yours (HA!), I used it 3 times in different color combos. These cards are completely CAS (clean and simple) yet so sparkly IRL! So grab a cuppa and settle in for picture overload!

Have you seen Jennifer's YouTube videos of coloring with sparkle? You can find it HERE and I followed right along with these cards. I used water color paper, distress markers and a clear Wink of Stella pen for coloring the flowers, highlighting around the image and word as well as creating the border around the main panel. I hope you can see the sparkle in this gorgeous image!!

I added distress marker directly to the edge of the main panel which is popped up on dimensionals; then a fine line underneath the main panel and color washed it out to the edges with the clear Wink of Stella.
