The Earth Laughs in Flowers

Hello friends, today I am sharing a card created usiing a Penny Black Inc Collage image - I do love these stamps - colouring them - so easy and so pretty - we all have times when we need a quick card but want it to have that WOW factor - this is when collage images come into their own.

I have stamped the image using Imagine Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black and have coloured the image using  Chameleon Art Pens. I have to say, it is so easy to colour using the self blending pens - definitely a favourite with me.  The collage been cut/embossed using a retired Spellbinders Die and the Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine - 6" Platform and popped up onto a pre-cut card base using using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.  

The computer generated sentiment has also been popped up onto a pre-cut card base using using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.  Want2Scrap pearls have been added to the butterflies bodies  and finishing off randomly adding sequins.

                                    This card is linked to the following challenges:
