Feel Better Soon



This was a really fun card to make as I have lots of glitter everywhere and I created my own flourish with a pearl pen.  The sentiment and image are from the Asian Leaf Robe stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle.

SNS's Cerulean embossing powder was used to emboss the vase onto watercolor paper.  I then used Distress markers and a water brush to color the image.  Evening Glow glitter was used to add sparkle to the border dies from MFT as well as to the sentiment.  The seam binding ribbon was dyed to coordinate with Distress Stains.  For the flourish, I lightly penciled the design I had in my mind and then used a Viva Decor Pearl Pen to add the pearls on top of the pencil marks.  For the most part, the pencil marks were covered, but I just erased the ones that weren't after everything was dry.  The background paper is from Graphic 45.

You can find additional details about this card in the Sparkle N Sprinkle art gallery, here.  Here's a trick if you want to see all the works by any of the SNS designers: just type their name in the search box under Art Gallery.
