Blue Iris


Good Morning all, i hope you had a lovely weekend and found a bit of sunshine. 

Today im sharing a little card I made for a friend, i treated myself to a set of 12 Wink of Stella pens recently so this is my first outing with them.  I used them to both colour in the image and make a matching background. 



I first stamped the iris twice and coloured with 2 blue, 2 green and a touch of orange stella pens, i used them like watercolour and you still get the full sparkle effect.  I then die cut one into shape, using a mixed media die i cut out the hole detail, i then decoupaged the 2nd iris flower on top. 

I die cut a matching size and shape as the topper and using the stella pens made a background, once dry i glued it behind the topper, and mounted onto a cardbase using foam tape.   



Close up to try and show the sparkle, you can just about catch it, i had also shaded around the iris with yellow ink to give a softer effect. 

Items Used:
Chocolate Baroque 'elegant iris' stamp
Tim Holtz 'Mixed Media' dies
Sizzix framelits '658204'
Kuretake Zig Wink Of Stella pens



Thank you for stopping by and all your amazing comments last week on my crazy birds.  I hope you all have a good week. Emma
