Here are a few of my creations I have done for this hop today!

For this card I used Spectrum Noir colored pencils and gamsol to color it with. Now, this almost didnt survive....I spilled half my bottle of gamsol all over it and the table too...ug!! I was glad I was able because I spent some time on this coloring it...and I do have to say, I LOVE the Spectrum Pencils too! :D


for this card I was lazy, lol! I used some water color crayons I have and scribbled with them and then scribbled with water too. I saw a technique on SplitCoast to add glitter (I KNOW!! Dont faint Lee!) with a stencil and so I did that on this one. The butterfly is all sparkly with wink of Stella pen...that sure is a fun pen to have too! easy sparkle!! Here is a little closeup of the glittery stuffs:


And for this one, I mainly wanted to show off that gorgeous paper that you can get in the 'Ang and Me' kit which is available at Gina K Designs.
Ok, ready for more eye candy?
