Glitter n roses

I love these beautiful images from Aurora Wings - the one I've used for this card is Gardenia.  This was a new digital image I treated myself to for Christmas :)  I chose to colour her in strong reds with dark blond hair, to do this I used Pro-Markers.  Here's a close up image below.

Instead of doing the pearls matt I wanted to make them shine like jewels so I painted on some glue then sprinkled with DecoArt glitter.

I've kept the card fairly simple with papers and only used red, black and white card stock.  the Spellbinders dies are cut our of the same red card stock.  There's some glitter sprinkled onto the lower half of the card as though the glitter is cascading like fairy dust off the jewels.

The flowers and leaves I've used are from Wild Orchid Crafts and The Ribbon Girl.  Here's a close up on one of the flower sections from the card.  I've added some glitter to the flowers with a DecoArt writer.

The final embellishment are some black self adhesive gems.

I love the impact the red in this card makes.
