This is my first card using the Pansy set. It looks a little tilted because I put it on my silk scarf. I was trying to add to the silkness of the card because I used the faux silk technique. When I cropped the photo though I lost most of the scarf in the picture. Oh well! This was a fun and super easy technique. If you want to see how to do it go to CDS's blog. There is a tutorial there.

Here's the specs:
Stamps: CDS pansy
Ink: stazon black, old olive, perfect plum, elegant eggplant, yoyo yellow
markers: I used the inks listed above
accessories: pearls, cuttlebug dies, blending pen
coloring medium: watercoloring
special techniques: Faux silk (see CDS's blog for a tutorial)

Thanks for looking!
