Wine Time!

Good evening everyone

I hope your weekend has been good and you've been enjoying the gorgeous sunshine today. 

Yesterday I made another scene using the gorgeous Sheena sparkle pens.
It's so easy to do and they blend so easily. 

I wanted to create a scene of a lovely summer's evening with the sun just setting and 2 friends relaxing and catching up with a glass of wine , my kind of day lol

I used crafters companion stamps from 2 sets to create the scene and made the background using Sheenas sparkle pens and used water and white gel pen for highlights. 

I then stamped once it was dry and then coloured the girls in with the sparkle pens and left the rest as they were silhouette stamps, I just highlighted with my gel pen. 

I made a gatefold card out of A4 cardstock using Lynn Chapman's black and cream cardstock which just cost me a pound for oved 60 sheets , bargain or what. I got them from create and craft and used my reward points to purchase it. 

For the sentiment I stamped on a scrap piece of sparkle pen background I made just testing them and die cut using Tattered lace pierced rectangle die.  I then matted onto silver Mirri cardstock. 

I matted and layered all the flaps , used gems from my stash and made flowers from my usual tattered lace dies. 

The pearls, ruffled and krinkled ribbon are from create and craft. The rest from my bits and bobs stash

I thoroughly enjoyed creating these backgrounds and totally in love with my sparkle pens lol
