I used my Inktense pencils to colour in the flower and leaf, which were heat embossed on watercolour paper with white embossing powder. Stamps sets are PTI's Year of Flowers:Violets, and Boutique Borders.
I am also linking this to the Simon Says Stamps challenge:April Showers/Spring Flowers
I copied a background technique from one of the Papertrey Ink's designers, using PTI's Background Basics:Super Stripes. I stamped the solid stripe in Perfect Medium and applied purple Perfect Pearls overtop. (Say that 3 times quickly!)
Here is a close up, angled so that you can see the shine.
Thanks for looking, and have a great day!
