Skipping Stones Design Challenge - Four Embellishments

Hello everyone,

We are back with our monthly Skipping Stones Design Challenge and this time we are adding
4 EMBELLISHMENTS to our cards.

I have to say that this is a sad post for me as this is the last one I do for Skipping Stones Design.  It has been a wonderful opportunity for me as I have met some wonderful DT peeps and Heather is amazing.  Thank you for all the wonderful memories.

For my card today I cut out the top panel from white card stock and taped off the edges where the stitching is.  I wanted to create a small border around the panel.  I then used the Uplifting stamp set along with my coloured pencils and stamped the images in black ink. After applying my colour I used Gamsol for blending.  Gamsol is an oil based odourless mineral spirit that breaks down the pigments in the coloured pencils and blends out all the little marks and makes everything smooth.

I then added my 4 little pearls to the butterflies as my embellishments for this challenge.  I then added some Wink of Stella glitter to the hot air balloon and butterflies.

Don't forget to link up your projects so that we can see your wonderful creations.

Thanks for stopping by.  See you again.
