Playing with my new Spellbinder's Grand Calibur....

Hello my lovelies. I have been wanting the Spellbinder's Grand Calibur for quite a while now, so I eventually gave in and decided to treat myself this week. I absolutely love it....I just need to build up my collection of nesties now!
So, after having a play tonight with my new toy, here are the results of the first card using my nesties.

I used 3 different sized nesties. The stamp is from Lili of the Valley. I have coloured it using Polychromo pencils in the following colours:
Rose Carmine, Middle purple pink, Magenta, Mauve, Ultramarine, Light Ultramarine, Burnt Ochre, Dark Naples Ochre, Warm Grey and Warm Grey 2.

I have inked all the edges including the 8x8 card base and Fizzy Moon Celebration papers using Dew Drop Brilliance Pigment ink in Sky Blue.

I have embellished with lace, fibre and sequin thread, various flowers and pearls and a Happy Birthday Sentiment from Kanban.

I loved making this card, I hope you have enjoyed looking at it,

have fun and happy crafting,
lots of love NJ XXXX
