Fred She Said Design Team Showcase

This is one of two posts today, please scroll for more inspiration!

Welcome to the Fred She Said Design Team Showcase!  Tracey-Lynn is introducing the new Fred, She Said Design Team with a fun blog hop!  Check out the details at the end of my post.

For my card I used the Dragonfly Flower Doodledallion Set.  I colored my image with Copic Markers:  RV69, RV66, RV63, G46, G43.

I framed my doodledallion with the paper pricking pattern from the Diamond Rose With Paper Pricking Pattern Set.  Instead of pricking the dots, I simply *dotted* them with the Faber-Castell Green Metallic Pitt Artist Pen.  This is gives it a subtle sheen, and great effect.

My final embellishments are Martha Stewart butterfly punches, Candi embellishments and gems.

Love your colours here Michelle - and the dotted design is a great idea, rather than piercing.

Hi Michelle, I love your card! Your coloring is very pretty & pinks & greens are two of my favorites. Thanks for the alternative paper pricking idea, I may have to scrap-lift it a time or two. :-) I'm so happy to be one of the FSS DT members for this term & looking forward to everyone's individual styles!
Hugs,
