I had a great time bashing some movies that I know some people love but that is what is so much fun...a difference of opinion:) so now on to card making. I made all of these on the weekend and would have uploaded them yesterday after work if I did not get attacked by the killer shrimp meal..I will not order from there again...ick. OK so all these cards I stuck to the same colouring and same stamp but I thought it would be cool to try all the different methods one could use...and I know there is so much more...The top one I used chalks, even for the backgound.

This card I made my first attempt at prisma pencil crayons and I think it turned out quite well. The background I sponged in 2 brown inks and then brayered it to try to get a leather look..I into leather but that's for a different blog:)

This card I inked and embossed the image in gold and then used my tombow markers in a watercolour effect. the background was also done with the tombows and then I used water to try to meld the colours together.

Of course, I can not stay away from sparkle so I used pinks and greens for the sparkle and even a brown for the stem-all sparkly because in a former life I was a magpie:)

Yup Tombows again but this time I used them straight on the paper and then water to put it all together. the background I used alcohol inks. Finished it off with cuddlebug, pearls and stickers

This last rose I coloured with twinkling H2O's and placed it on the paper that I cuddlebugged and highlighted it with brown sparkle...can't get away from the sparkle:)
