A touch of Green

Thought I'd have a go at colouring my new sweet pea stamp which is Its my Birthday, she's got such pretty wings and I love the star background. There are some GREEN challenges around this week so I've headed that way and coloured her with promarkers. This time Ive used sakura stardust pens as highlights rather than the spica pen as they seem more sparkly so Ive used cler, green and purple sparkly ones with red, orange and yellow for the candle and stars.

A perfect choice of background for these stamps is the beloved starburst stains. I've used Tibetian poppy teal which is one of my favourites and simply painted on a couple of coats so the whole image is super sparkly!
I've edged around it with brilliance black and mounted it on black card torn at the bottom (A Kim Reygate influence!) and put that onto a cuttlebugged background coloured with starburst stains in french lilac violet which I also made the paper rose and punched flowers with.

DP's are from designer extremes vol 3. Ribbon is a white organza with a gold/green stripe.
