September Rhythm

I'm making my debut tonight so be gentle with me lol! Teresa asked me over the weekend if I'd like to join their Design Team and I'm very flattered so here I am!

I've chosen September Rhythm which was the first one that caught my eye when I saw it on a blog and led me to checking out the sweet pea site who pointed me to the Crafts and Me site where I could get hold of them!

I've coloured her with promarkers and used sakura stardust pens as sparkly highlights. You can use a clear sakura stardust pen to draw in highlights and if you dont want to see solid lines and a more subtle glitter then simply colour some on an area like the tail fin and quickly spread it with your finger, this gives a nice subtle coverage of glitter which suits these stamps well.
The background is painted with twinkling H2o's using a more concentrated mix around the design and a more watery one for the outside so you only use one colour. Flowers are prima wildflowers with others from stash.

Have to tell you that when I was doing the clear sparkly highlights with the sakura stardust I couldnt get the glitter to come out so I did my usual banging of the pen, shaking it wildly in the air and sucking it to no avail, the clear ink was coming through but not the glitter until I realised I was actually using the sakura GLAZE pen in clear *doh*
