Today's WT is about Sparkle.
I've always wanted to try embossing in white, then coloring an image. So when I saw this card I just had to give it a try. However, I did find that some of the white came off and onto the alcohol markers. Won't try this again unless I use water colors.
After coloring, I noticed that the marker color stayed on some of the embossing so I went back with a white gel pen and traced over the lines. The smaller bloom was stamped and fussy cut. I die-cut a cajun & a daffodil border, but in the end I liked the image left alone. Added some rhinestones, Gold Ribbon and Wink of Stella to the prills for my sparkle. The main panel is popped up. Thanks for stopping by! ~Roberta

Roberta, I think many of us have made that discovery....you're not alone! : ) It does work beautifully with watercolors and goes so quickly. Your card is beautiful and heralds the coming of the spring with flowers. Lovely colors and card design.

Beautiful, Roberta with the super clean look...gives your fantastic images center stage. The tiny ribbon is a great touch to finish this card. I never have tried the white embossing with copics, just water colors or reinkers. TFS

Roberta - this is beautiful and I would never have known you had trouble with staining. So I would put your "fix" in the awesome category. You shimmery gold ribbon and rhinestones are all the glitz needed on this pretty card.
