For My Honey

Guess who this card is for....

My wonderful hubby :) He doesn't get it till tomorrow.....so SHHHHHH....don't tell him I posted it here!

I'm not gonna give all the details for making this one. I used so many shades of colored pencils, markers, inks etc that I don't think I could remember it all. Yep...one of those experiments! Everytime I put a color down on this image...it was not what I wanted so I just kept adding on more! You ever have that happen? I usually start with white cardstock to stamp an image on...but this time I didn't.....so I'm thinking that the colored CS is what threw me. And when I put the Crystal Effects on to create the Honey effect....some of the ink colors under it got a lot brighter. The good news is I really like how it turned out. :)

Most of the images are Close to My Heart stamps.

Oh yummm that honey looks delicious!! I love how you made it looks so real! Did you use very thick card stock for your cutouts or does it just look that way in the picture?
