Sending Hugs

Hi everyone, I have another card to share using my (current) favourite new stamp set by AALL & Create - this time I have gone for a different more CAS look, and felt inspired to have a rare colouring session with my Promarkers so that I could enter Passion For Markers’ special 14th birthday challenge!

I cut a piece of Neenah Crest Solar white card (which I always use for colouring with alcohol markers), stamped the flower and then coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I added some white gel pen highlights, and stamped some additional spatters randomly with Distress Oxide ink. I added some sparkle by colouring over the circle with my Spectrum Noir sparkle pen, edged the panel in black and matted onto lilac card stock and a 7” x 5” card blank. Finally I stamped the sentiment onto separate card, fussy cut out and attached popped up on foam squares. 

Here is an angled shot to capture the sparkle.

Stamps: AALL & Create #904 Flower Journey; Visible Image Christmas Red Robin (spatters); Uniko Simply Said Blocks II;
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers; Tim Holtz Distress Oxide ink (Shaded Lilac); Memento ink (black); Versafine Clair (Nocturne); Spctrum Noir sparkle pen (clear);
