Go with all your heart

I love this image from Flourishes, the technique is painting with stickles on split coast, Flourishes was to use flowers and the other challenge for them was red, pink and white. The sketch is from Priscialla's midnight madness.  I stamped the image in memento black, used copics to color it and then went over all of it with stickles, cotton candy on the flowers, lime green on the leaves and patina on the bird. I used the dies direct die cuts from Cheery Lynn designs for the shapes, gems from Michaels and ribbon from Reasonable ribbon's monthy club.  Please check out the links for these wonderful blogs and the inspiration on each of them. Reasonable ribbon is having a giveaway check it out.

Love my Stickles, and I've always wanted to color a whole image with them. I'll have to look up the "painting" technique. This is just beautiful, Karen!

Dawn Edwards said...

What a Fabulous Card. When you add Stickles to your project you can never go wrong. Your image is shimmery beautiful. The heart accents match the sentiment perfectly and I love how you added one on the bow as well.
Thanks for joining us this week at Midnight Madness sketch challenge. I hope you join us again next week.
