Here's a quick card I made for mom for mother's day. I didn't really have time to do something elaborate or complicated since I've been away for work. I decided to keep it simple and use this patterned paper.
I thought the flowers on the paper were plain, so I added some colour to it with my "Metallic Melon" Gelatos ... no, it's not a new flavour of ice cream. Gelatos is a product by Faber-Castell; they are compact acid-free pigment sticks. I added a bit of water on the pigment stick and used my finger to apply the colour on the flowers.
Here's a close up of the flowers ... I don't know if you can see the shimmer of the Gelatos on them. Of course, I added a bit of stickles on the center of the flower :)
