It’s the little things…

I printed the image on Sparkle Blanc and thought I would try something new. I didn’t know what that something new was; I was just gonna try it.

I have these Derwent Metallic pencils that I have NEVER used so decided to color my image with the few colors available. It was like a green, bergundy and grey. Then I matched those colors to some paper from Paper Temptress. Then I tapped a distress ink (sorry forgot what color) on to my craft mat and picked up some ink with a stipple brush and sort of started brushing it across the image. Mind you this paper was white to begin yet you can still see all the fabulous sparkle when done. (this may be a take on a Technique Junkie technique. Feel free to let me know). I liked it 🙂 so I edged it with gold leaf and layered with  Mars Mica Metallic, Gamma Green Pearlescent, Sparkle Noir and base is Mars Mica Metallic. No idea where the sentiment came from but deemed it appropriate. Punched out with an SU punch and edged with gold leaf pen.
