Dewents, Pastels and Tombow's Oh my!

There is nothing like using the whole kit and kaboodle on a card! If you are wondering what I am talking about, it's the 3 different colouring mediums that I combined for this sweet Teacup Daisies stamp by Stamping Bella.

Don't ask me why, but when I coloured this image I ended up grabbing my tombows, derwent inktense pencils and some pastels and went to town colouring up this image. I was more or less just playing around but I loved how it turned out so I made a card for it :D

I think that with all the dreary rain that we have been having, it's put me in the mood to break out my go to cheery and bold papers. For this card I used the Thrift Shop line by October Afternoon and distressed it a little with some inks and a distressing tool. I added some Martha Stewart seam binding that I picked up on sale yesterday to finish off the card along with a button and some copper bella baubles :D

Thanks for coming by and I will be back a little later today with an announcement so stay tuned :D
