Final "STUFF Swap" Card

Here is my final Stuff Swap card.  I began with a pretty Sweet Pea image colored with Copic markers.
I layered it over some dp after punching an edge.  Layered that over another dp and onto the craft base.

The "Stuff" used for this card was flowers.  We had to use them in any way, any style or number for the Stuff Swap.  I only had room for one as it was very big.  Of course it is a Prima "Calypso".

I used my "new" Viva Decor pen "Black Pearl" to make tiny pearls along the Martha Stewart punched edge.  A portion of the verse that comes with this plate #64 was inked and stamped onto a word window
punched piece and matted with black.  A faceted black gem sits in the flower center.

If you are thinking of getting a Viva Decor pen I will tell you they are well worth the price.  I was able to make some very tiny faux pearls that do not look handmade and of course were much easier to place exactly where I wanted!

This is elegant and not overbearing! I need to get me a couple of those pens. I have been looking at them but never knew anyone that actually used them.
