Waltzingmouse Sketch #9 Meets Flourishes

Really squeaking in with this card today.  I love Waltzingmouse Stamps and the new Waltzingmouse sketch challenge blog, but I so far I have only been able to participate in two of the sketch challenges.   Today I decided to make it three.   I used my new Flourishes set Humming Along for the card.  Stamping the image with Memento London Fog ink and then coloring it with my Prisma pencils and gamsol.  I kept the card really simple because I wanted the image to shine.  The sentiment is from the Humming Along set, as well. 

The card is also for the brand spankin' new Flourishes challenge called Bringing Back Beautiful (BBB01).  For the very first challenge we are asked to use our favorite coloring technique.  It is safe to say that I really enjoy coloring with Prisma pencils and gamsol.  I'm trying to work on my Copic coloring so I can add that to the list.  The cardstock is PTI's white and Spring Rain.

Thanks for taking a peek.... hope you have a wonderful day!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI White & Spring Rain; Stamps:  Flourishes Humming Along; Prisma pencils, gamsol; Cuttlebug; Spellbinders Plain & Scalloped Long Rectangles; Ink:  Memento London Fog
