Flourishes Lace & Pearls

So the current (for a couple more hours) Flourishes challenge to use Lace & Pearls was kind of a challenge - not so much because I wasn't sure what to use, but I had too many ideas. I think just about every set I own by Flourishes works well for this theme! Anyhow, I went with Dahlias, and one of my crocheted mats:


Supplies: Dahlias stamp set from Flourishes; Memento Gray Flannel ink; Bic & Spectrum Noir markers; Prismacolor pencils; gingham paper from MME; sentiment from PTI; pearl strips from Dollarama; classic small & lacy oval Nesties; crocheted mat by me

I'm trying to practice colouring a bit, and I really find using markers to lay down the base colour, and Prismacolor pencils to shade makes it easier for me. I'm pretty happy with how this turned out!
