Watercolor Crayons & Stickles

Another Beautiful Flower Stamp.

This Hibiscus stamp is new from Penny Black. Since I totally love hibiscus flowers I had to have this stamp. I can totally give a reason for EVERY stamp I have purchased or still want to purchase! Can you relate? LOL There's ALWAYS something that makes that stamp or stamp set a "gotta have it" item. Don't ya love it!! hee hee hee I made this card is for my MIL.




I stamped the card base with StampinUP's Sanded Background stamp using Versamark. The sentiment is stamped using SU Going Gray Classic and I went over the swirls with a Clear Spica Glitter Pen. For the Hibiscus I colored directly on the stamp with SU Watercolor Crayons. Then I spritzed the stamp with a fine mist of water before stamping on SU Naturals White Cardstock. After it was all dry I put Stickles Glitter Glue all over the flower - Star Dust on the yellow, Eucalyptus on the green and Fruit Punch on the rest. How nice to have so many colors of Stickles to choose from...right here in my craftroom! Yep...HAD to have all those different colors of Stickles! LOL
