Will-O and the Wisp Card

Morning everyone.

Bit later today as it was too dark to take pics of this card by the time I had finished it and it's a fairly dark card anyway so the pic isn't that great even now.

But I've used one of the fabulous Sweet Pea Stamps we have at Scribble and Scrap Crafts

Will-o and the Wisp is such a beautiful image...they all are!  Here she is:

These brighter colours are a little out of my comfort zone as I love my paler colours, but it's always fun to try out something new and these images just scream out for colour.

I have used the following Promarkers to colour this image:

 Marine, Turquoise, Cool Aqua, Caramel, Sandstone, Satin, Coral, Sunkissed Pink, Blush, Baby Pink, Antique Pink, Ginger, Oatmeal, Daffodil Bloom, Pineapple Crush, Eggnog, Peony, Tropical Orchid, Pink Lobster, April Shower, Lime Green, Bright Green and Forest Green. 

I have also used the First Editions New Blooms 6x6 Paper Pad (available at Scribble and Scrap)
some clear faux gems from my stash
a sentiment stamp from my stash
and some green card from my stash.  This is a little lighter than it looks in the photo but it god darker as I corrected all the other colours digitally.

The inside is decorated to match.

Right...I'm off to make some soda bread with Jamie.  Never made it before but we're really enjoying baking together now that we have a bigger kitchen.

Take care and happy crafting!
