Coloured Pencils

This card kept changing as I was making it. I started off by stamping the sunflower (an old PSX one) with a dark green raised felt dye ink, but I did this ages ago, so I pulled it out of the box and coloured it with Karisma colour pencils, which gave a nice waxy feel to it. I wiped some VersaCraft pigment ink in cerulean blue onto a craft sheet, spritzed with water and sponged all over the card. The colour pencils made the sunflower image resist the ink. Did the same with Adirondack raised flet dye ink pad in Lettuce and the same with Wild Plum. Wiped the edges with the wild plum putting a bit more around the sides and then spritzed water on it and dried it with a heat gun to stop it bleeding. Mounted onto turquoise perlescent card and matt gold before attaching to cread linen card. Once again, having problems with the photography so uploaded two photos taken on different cameras in different rooms, need to sort this out.

Well it worked really well in the end!! I often like to just put things aside and come back to them later, sometimes you end with a completely different take on it.
