I have 2 projects to share today :)
Using the gorgeous Colourista colouring pads, honestly these blew me away, the Glitter and the Foil what an amazing invention for colouring!

The first is a hanging plaque, I brought in a cheap shop and decorated it
I coloured elements from the A4 Colourista Glitter pad and the 5 x 7 Colourista glitter pad, cut them out and shaped the flowers, I used the Colourista colours to colour with and the shine you see in the photo has had no enhancement, it is the pure glitter! The pens blend magically over it! and the bestest bit is the glitter stays put! you are not covered in it from colouring! The more I colour over Glitter the more I become addicted to it! 

The second project I have to share today is the fab Foil pad :)
Oh me oh my
The resist from the foil on this I love, its almost like you try to make the foil disappear but it is not having it and shines through, I adore this pad, and wanted to do something a little different than traditonal colouring, so I got out my sparkle pens and washed over the sheet with water then dripped ink directly from the pens onto the sheet, love it!
I just love the effect! I think I will be doing a few more like this, one of my fave things to do with sparkle pens lol

I kept the card basic as the images says it all :)

Thanks so much for popping by today - I really hope you enjoy the hop - don't forget to leave a comment for prizes :) yay

We also have a WATCH PARTY event happening on Facebook - do join up :) its FREE and FUN
