Hello! I have made a card today using an image by Nikki Burnette. I have to say I was a little intimidated when I first got this one because there seems to be so much to color, but once I got started it was really fun!

When I was done I sprayed the whole image with Shimmer Spritz in Sparkle. It looks lovely and sparkly, without effecting the image in real life but in the photo it is making it look kind of grainy and blurry....The doves are a Martha Stewart punch from last year - I punched it several times and cut it apart and the re-layered it back together so that I could position the wings differently on each of them. For the brown background piece I coated my embossing folder with Espresso Bean Glimmer Glam before putting the paper in.

The Details:
Stamp: Nikki Burnette's Neva (Plate 82) - Sweet Pea Stamps
Paper: Basic Grey, Early Espresso (SU), White for image - Copic XPress
