SSS & Show --Anything Goes



This is a card I made today for someone on their special day. I had recently done a card class using alcohol inks and had a few pieces left over which I just couldn't throw away .The colors reminded me of an evening sky and felt it suited the image I used so nicely . I colored the flowers with Towbow markers and added Viva pearls to the centers.
Supplies :
Stamp : Hero Arts, HFC sentiment
Paper : Basic Grey,Bazzil C/S
Ink: Alcohol inks(eggplant,shell pink,pearl mixative)Archival Jet Black.
Accessories: Spellbinders Beaded Circles, Marvy corner punch, Spellbinders label4,MS border punch, flowers from my stash,Towbow markers, Pearls from my stash, Viva pearl pen.
