MINI BLOG HOP TOUR DAY 2






It's day 2 of our mini blog hop tour. I

hope everyone had fun hopping around yesterday and are ready for some more hopping. I know I'm ready!! Here is the sketch for todays card.


THE LINK TO THE NEXT STOP ON THIS BLOG HOP WILL BE AT THE END OF THIS POST.

Here is my take on this sketch



On this card I stamped my image with black stazon ink and colored it with a blender pen and my stampin pastels. (I am so loving my pastels). I then rubbed some Not Quite Navy chalk around the edge of the paper to give it kindof a sky feel to it. The flowers are from the pretties kit and I dyed the big one in Bermuda bay reinker and the little on was dyed in the same re-inker and water mixture ( this gave it just a touch a light blue coloring). When they were dry I used my 2 way glue pen and cover the entire flower with glue and sprinkled dazzling diamonds glitter over them. Love the sparkle.
