Sweet Poppy Stencils "Dragonfly Blooms" Card

This is another card started in the caravan at the weekend and finished off at home.

I've used the Sweet Poppy Stencil stamp set called "Dragonfly Blooms", stamped in Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink in second generation stamping, so that I had a very pale outline of the image.

I coloured the stamped image using Derwent Inktense pencils applied with a paint brush.  I used a 2B pencil to add shading and a white Signo Pen to add highlights. I also used a metallic silver pen for the beads and chain.

The "Just for you" sentiment is by Lavinia Stamps and is part of their "Heartfelt Verse" sentiment set, stamped in Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink.
