blender pens/ aquapainters/crystal effects

My Parents have always had very beautiful gardens but it wasnt until they moved to Karitane that this was recognised formally, and they often won prizes and had open homes to let others share in this beautiful but hard graft past time. I Have choosen to use a shop brought paper for this however it is printed on water colour paper, therefore I had a lovely time matching up my stampin up ink pads and pastels then with blender pens and aqua-painters applied them to the paper it was great fun. Crystal effects have been applied to the butterfly and prima flowers with pearl centres. if you want to know more about or order any above stampin up product mentioned here feel free to contact me any time
