Romantic Era Part I

Here we go...
I found this wonderful sandpaper feel sparkling and shining cardstock and although I have only few sheets, I love to use it, because it is so beautiful and easy to work with. This time it is used to create sort of pyramid with Nestabilities and then it needed one layer only for image itself.

This last photo was taken with flash just to show how gems and all thingies spark :)
Die Cuts - Spellbinders Nestabilities
Gems are from Samuel Taylors Craft Essentials
Ribbon stash
Lilac bp again from ST
"Golden chain" is from Mad About Crafting
Image is Ann's Paper Art (Danish company, I recall...)

Until next time, my dears :)

Oh, as much as I would love to take all credit for the colorine, I can't. It's Prismacolors ;) 
948 Sepia, 915 Lemon Yellow, 922 Poppy Red, 1003 Spanish Orange, 913 Spring Green, 1009  Dahlia Purple
all blended with Johnson Baby Oil with stump

  1. Annemaritta, that is gorgeous! I love that paper, too. The image is beautiful, you did an awesome coloring. It's so hard for me to use up some of my "special" things, but then I have to remind myself that's what I bought it for. I just make sure it's for a special person. Hugs, dj
