Tulip Wishes

Howdy all!  Happy Good Friday to everyone!  I hope you get today off to spend with all the amazing people in your life.  I’m lucky enough to have my son AND hubby home this weekend so I’m planning a low-key weekend full of laziness, crocheting and colouring!

Today the Power Poppy Bloom Brigade and the Instant Gardeners are sharing the newest digi release… introducing “Tulips in Hobnail-Pitcher”.
Derwent Inktense Pencils: 0100, 0300, 0400, 0500, 0610, 0740, 1320, 1400, 1500, 1530, 2000, 2200 

Isn’t it darling? For my card today I used Derwent Inktense Pencils and can I just LOVE the end result.  The colour you get using these beauties is amazing and so rich and vibrant but can pulled out and made to be light and gorgeously translucent.

For my greeting, I used a sentiment from the equally gorgeous “Simply Camellias”. 

Here’s a little close up of my water colour effect…

I used some Copic Multi-liners and a Sakura Jellyroll White Pen to add some of the speckled details to my background.

Don't forget to enter our Power & Spark challenge for the month!  This month our hostess, Stacy, has a fun sketch for you to try out.  For more details and the rules, please click HERE.

Oh, Ally, do you ever cease to amaze?! I absolutely love this watercolor beauty using your pencils! Wow! The looseness and design are amazing along with the beautiful colors, and I love the added highlights using the multi-liner pens and white Sakura gel pen. And what a great finish by simply using the stitched rectangles and popping it a bit! Absolutely head over heels about this card!! Hugs, sweet friend, and enjoy your time with the family this weekend! xoxo
