MY WORD IS COLORED PENCIL
For today’s releases I used some premade fold-over cards from Hampton Arts (available at big box craft stores—very inexpensive).  I saw them and thought it would be fun to bump them up a few notches! 
Same layout—different stamps—a lot of fun!
wish
Notes: The pattern on the left was colored with various tones of grey colored pencils.  I highlighted some of the areas with Stickles glitter glue and Diamond Glaze.  The “fluff” on the dandelions was highlighted with Stickles, as well.
Materials:
Stamp: Dandelions (SKU: 540-2) from Rubbernecker Stamp Company;
Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink-Black Soot;
Paper: Hampton Arts “Ditto Fold Over Card”; Black Cardstock;
Accessories: Stickles Glitter Glue; Thickers letter stickers; Judikins Diamond Glaze, Felt flower, glitter brad; corner rounder punch;

prayers faith
Notes: The card came with the printed dots on the left, I highlighted them with Stickles.  I mimicked the dots onto the gold side by dotting some acrylic paint then highlighting the dots with Stickles. I didn’t have a brad that matched the paper so I also use the acrylic paint on the brad.
Materials:
Stamps: Branch Set ( SKU: 559) From Rubbernecker Stamp Company)
Ink: Color Box Fluid Chalk Ink-Dark Brown
Paper: Hampton Arts “Ditto Fold Over Cards”; Cardstock scraps;
