Spectrum Aqua Pens....

So......like many people I got the new Spectrum Aqua Pens. I wanted to use them right away since I have been on quite the water coloring kick lately! I stamped these flowers from JustRite's Applique Flowers & Vintage Sentiment set with Versamark and embossed them in white.  I used the Spectrum Aqua Pens to give the flowers and leaves color.  For this image, I didn't use any water at all.  I colored with my darkest color first and then blended it using my lighter shades.  The color moved like butter! I cut out the flowers and leaves and adhered them to a circle/scalloped circles using Spellbinder's dies
The background uses the same Spellbinder's Criss Cross die that I had used on my last post.  I used the Spectrum Aqua pens to color it in shades of pink and yellow.  I added glossy accents to the entire panel and sprinkled it with glitter.  I added some ribbon, teeny flowers, and a few sequins and pearls. 
Thanks for having patience with me as I post somewhat infrequently.  My girl is taking up a  lot more of my time these days and my crafting /blogging time has been drastically reduced.  
But it's the way it is right now and things will get better! 
Have a wonderful Friday!

This looks absolutely perfect. All these tiny details are made with lot of background knowledge. I like it a lot.
