Japanese Anemone with Sparkle

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well.

I have a design to show using Designs by Ryn's new Japanese Anemone stencil.  The detail on her stencils is gorgeous.



The background is Turquoise Dylusions, purple Brushos crystal ink and a little Peacock Distress Paint.  I stamped Leafy Branch around the parameter.  I blended Distress Inks over the stencil and then over top spread Viva Crystal Gel.  When dry I added a little more colour with a metallic rub and then outlined the flower and highlighted the leaves with a white Gellyroll pen. 

The photo really doesn't do this design justice, but I can't get one that I'm satisfied with.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day,
Shirleyxx

Hey Shirley, I like the sparkle effect! I know, it's frustrating when the camera just won't capture a piece properly. I can't tell though. This looks great! I agree with Shirley, you do combine colours beautifully!
