Twinkling H2O Background

To make this card it painted watercolor paper with three different colors of Twinkling H2O's, a green, pink and purple. After it dried, I stamped it with this flower stamp from PrintWorks using black VersaFine ink, heat set it and outlined some of the image with a white gel pen. It was then layered on to black and purple papers, I dotted the purple paper with the white gel pen, then mounted it onto a black card. The water colored strip at the bottom is a piece I cut off of the main image. This is stunning in person since the Twinkling H2O's are very shimmery, the camera just can't pick that up :(

Love how you did the background colors and the white pen with the stamped images. Since I can't see all the shimmer, I'm just going to imagine it...and it's beautiful! ;)

I love using the twinks - your card came out so pretty. Yes, it is a shame the camera can't pick up the pretty shimmer of these!

I bet this is just stunning! *sigh* I still have 2 packs of unused H20's. I'm with Pat... I think I need to get busy and give them a try. You always have such beautiful effect techniques! TFS!
