White Gel Pen

Here's my card for today. I wanted to highlight the white gel pen! Here I used it to highlight my silhouetted flower. I also pierced holes on the green and connected the dots to make it look like stitching. A lot easier than real sewing!!!
The flower image from Kind & Caring Thoughts was embossed with black. I sponged around it with purple, and highlighted with the white gel pen. The green piece was embossed with texturz and the Big Shot! I also versamarked the background. The beautiful flower was made using just ONE punch! I layered the flowers from the boho blossoms punch 5 times and put a button on top! How cute is that!

This is beautiful! Love the colors and the faux stitching! I agree- the white gel pen is SO much easier than dragging out the sewing machine! TFS!

Very pretty! I have a white gel pen but never use it. It is amazing how much it adds to the image - looks great the way you have used it.
