Everything’s coming up (cabbage) roses

jsldt2ndnov 001

This month’s challenge at Just Some Lines is 3 or More Embellishments.To play along you need to use a Just Some Lines image to enter and you could win a fantastic digi stamp if you’re picked as part of the Top 3!

For my card I’ve used the delightful Cabbage Rose Fairy by Just Some Lines .I’ve coloured her with my first attempt using my new Graph’It Markers.I also purchased some brush nibs for her hair.I quite enjoyed using these pens but think I need a little more practice.I like the bullet nibs as they are fine and fairly firm but the real bonus is you can remove the chisel end and add a brush nib if you want that extra bit of detail.It’s quite magical too watching the ink seep into them…LOL.There are some other fun accessories that go with them too – but I’ve yet to play further…They are great pens but I don’t think I would buy too many more as I already own a full set of Ciao’s and ProMarkers.If someone was thinking about starting using alcohol markers or only had a small collection of other makes I could recommend them.I know you can mix different brands but I prefer to stick to the same,whichever I choose to colour an image with…maybe I’m just strange?!  😉 …Back to the card…I picked some pretty papers to go with this gal and remembered I had just bought a new embossing folder that would suit her perfectly. Her wings have been coated with Frosted Lace Stickles for a more subtle shimmer.I dug out some ribbon and self adhesive pearls from my stash to complete the card.
