Crafter's Companion Card

I must say that working with the great
products from Crafter's Companion make
my crafting so much fun. 
I was using Spectrum Noir ColourBlend pencils, Blending
Stumps and Gamsol to color this awesome 
stamped image from the "Time Flies" set.
 Spectrum Noir - Pencil Blending StumpsSpectrum Noir Blending Solution - 4oz Bottle
Working with the pencils is so simple and
they blend beautifully! I added a bit of color 
on around part of the outer image and blended
it out. I added some Gold Spectrum Noir Sparkle
pen to the watch for the touch of bling and 
using a Silver Sparkle pen I gave the chain some glitz. 
I stamped the image an extra time so I could
color and cut out some additional butterflies
to raise up and give the needed dimension.
To finish the watch I used some crystal lacquer
to give my watch face dimension. 
I created my layering using Gold sparkle and
Gold mirror cardstock from Crafter's Companion 
and some black cardstock. Watch for, and shop,
Crafter's Companion on HSN.
