Mmmmmm....Milkshake!

Here is an easel-style card I have made using pink, grey and black tones. I could not resist using my favourite things on this card; glitter, glimmer mist and glossy accents! My stamp is an adorable bear drinking a milkshake from Hooked on Craft; isn't he so cute? I think he is really enjoying that delicious looking sugary treat! Mmmmmmm yummo! I have coloured him with copics and added glitter and glossy accents. My flowers and leaves all started off as white but I spritz them with glimmer mist in 'viva pink', 'black magic', 'hot chocolate', and 'bronze' (except for the black flowers but I spritz them too!) . I think I am obsessed with glimmer mist and I seem to be 'accidently' purchasing more and more colours. But you can never have enough, right? My doilie, lace and flower ribbons, leaves and flowers are also from Hooked on Craft. In the background I have used some core-dinations paper and I embossed it with my cuttlebug and lightly sanded it back to reveal the light pink colour underneath.

Let me know what you think! I love reading everyones comments.
