In the bin......

I started this card last night, normally I colour with watercolours but I didn't have time to go to the printers and get the image put onto my watercolour paper......doing it this way the ink doesn't run when I use water. I coloured the image with promarkers now I own the grand total of 5 so I was limited with colours.....lol ,so I used three of them hence the pink/orange colour scheme, after I coloured it in I picked it up to throw it in the bin but not one for giving up I got out the glitter......a gals best friend and left it over night drying, this morning I decided to give it another go, the flowers are glimmer misted and embossed with cosmic shimmer aurora, the swirls are marianne dies. after these were added I was quite pleased with it.......


Image is by Lilyboo from Cuddly Buddly, called Queen of Hearts

Such a princess! adorable Daniele and Love the bling.

A little trick you can try using ink that runs. If you spray your paper with spray sealer, Lightly at first then a couple of regular coats it should seal the ink so you can still do your watercolor, Give it a try.
