Playing with Sparkle Pens again!

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

Happy Friday, the gateway to the weekend. I hope you have something nice planned. I will be making the last few bits for the wedding which is following week on Easter Saturday. I have set a cut off point for changes and the bride and groom were happy with this. I have done lots of prep so hopefully it won't take too long.

On to today's creation. Well after playing with the Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens at my friend's house I decided I had to have my own. They arrived on Wednesday and I couldn't wait for a play.


I found this stamp in my stash it came free with a magazine sometime ago and it is designed to go with the Spellbinder's Lacey Circle dies. I stamped the image onto watercolour paper with an Archival  Black ink and waited for it to dry. Once it was dry I coloured the image with the Sparkle pens. At my friend's house I used a water brush. I don't have one of these yet so I used and watercolour paint brush and some water. This worked fine to draw out the colour from the pens. 


This was a lovely image  to colour with the pens. The sparkle doesn't show in the photo but it is there I can assure you. I do like these pens I think I will be buying some more. I added a pattered paper and some lace and the card was finished. 


I think you will be seeing me using these pens a lot. Enjoy your weekend. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
