Cardabilities and Lemoncraft

I have been on a bit of a card making kick of late. Today I am sharing a card that I made using patterned papers from Lemoncraft's Heart Painted collection from My Creative Scrapbook's May Limited edition kit and Cardabilities sketch #126.

Supplies: patterned papers (Lemoncraft), clear gesso (Liquitex), gesso (Golden), watercolour pencil crayons (Prima), stamp and thread (Dollarama), ink (Ranger), glass bead glitter gel (Faber-Castell), ribbon and doily (My Creative Scrapbook kit May 2015), cardstock (CTMH)

I gave this one a touch of watercolouring using Prima Watercolour Pencils adding colour to the black and white magnolia image after it was treated with a layer of clear gesso. Watercolour was also added to a lightly gessoed area beneath the flower.

For a touch of bling, I dragged thread through glass bead glitter gel for a sparkly effect and nested it under the image area once it was dry. Some distressing and stitching rounds this one out.

This was the sketch that I used:
