PSX Hibiscus

Here I have used a few different techniques - the Marvy Metallic background, using the labels to stamp on and the spotlight technique. The flower was coloured in with Prisma pencils and solvent. I keep trying to practise what I have been taught about pencil colouring from my special friend Bethel. She is just so good at it - well she is so good at everything she attempts!! I really enjoy colouring - no matter what medium I try!

Now I have to get my mind into gear about what to take for a stamping retreat this coming weekend. Knowing me, I will not get much card making done - too busy chatting and seeing what others are up to but the make and takes etc will be fun.
