Friday Sketchers #3 & Stamp Something #3

This weeks Stamp Something challenge is Faux Something. Here's my card, I've gone for faux stitching using a white souffle pen. I've also used my gorgeous Elisabeth Bell stamp watercoloured with Whispers. The papers are Basic Grey, I always seem to pick up pinks and greens when using this stamp, I don't know why! Then I added some faux pearls, little flowers, a strip of hessian and a sentiment made on the PC. Thanks for looking!

Absolutely stunning. Gorgeous and original card.

I never manage to get that lovely effect using my Whispers. Can I be cheeky and ask - do you apply pen directly to the image and then watercolour or do you take the colour from an acrylic block with a brush? ~x~
