Pencils on Black

What a gorgeous day it was today, first real day of spring. The spring is making itself known in the garden. Lots of yellow everywhere. 

Today's card is inspired by the "Pencils on dark card" theme over at House of Cards, the Sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches and the colours at Sunday Stamps. I stamped and heat embossed the gorgeous Elizabeth background stamp in white fine powder, and then filled in some of the spaces with my lovely scented pencils which I got as a Christmas present from my sister in law. I die cut the sentment from a leftover piece of green card I had inked up at some point as well as some yellow card. 

Card: Black 250 gsm card, scraps of yellow and lilac card
Stamps: Simon Says Stamp Elizabeth background
Ink and colouring: Tsukineko Versamark, pencils
Other: CUTplorations Hugs Word die, Wow white fine embossing powder
