Blender pen!

I used a blender pen for the first time! What a fantastic tool! Why has no one ever told me I needed one of those before NOW? You just dab it on the inkpad and color...it's like having markers in every shade of ink you own!I stamped the image 3 times with Ranger Black Archival ink and then used a blender pen to color the images. So simple, but quite pretty (if I do say so myself)! Looking at the photo here it looks like the coloring doesn't match, but it is perfect IRL. I used a glitter gel pen (from the Stardust Galaxy set I bought at Verve Visual) to add highlights to the berries, but you can't see it too well here. It really adds a nice sparkle.
Just a simple card for the head of the daycare where our youngest goes. She's an amazing girl and has been helping me a lot recently.
All stamps and CS and ribbon by SU, Ink is SU, Impress, and Ranger.
