Mojo - Bonfire Night

Hey all, this card was put together last night, but I wanted to wait until there was natural day light in order to take the photograph.

Man I was annoyed with my first attempt at this, I coloured the image in beautifully (if I do say so myself!!) only to go and spoil it while attempting to add fireworks to the background with stickles. Never again. Those little pots of glitter are NOT, I repeat NOT suitable for detailed work, at least not with my skill anyway. [Does anybody know a way of  applying stickles in very - very - thin lines?] Although I think it has something to do with the type of stickles I used.. 'Distress Stickles' which are matching in colour to the Distress Inks, boy, the nozzle on those bottles are large!! I definitely think the nozzles on those stickles are wider than standard stickle nozzles. So instead of spoiling another image I decided to use a stamp from Hero Arts - Holiday Dolls, its sorta like a spiky shaped thingy, anyway, I thought they would pass as fireworks in the background, as the white card looked slightly bare without them!

Anyhoo.. onto the card..

I gave this a go using some of the new ProMarkers I have recently bought, see this post for details on which ones I got. This stamp is g-o-r-g-e-o-u-s, I love her little hat! :) A lot of time and effort went into this card, more so than my usual cards, aside from the fact I had to colour in the image.. twice.

I'm loving that ribbon I used, the colour goes with absolutely everything, its sorta like the Kraft of the ribbon world. LOL. Its nice for tying too; it does as its told. Check out the shine I added to the candy apple with the ProMarker blender then I added glossy accents to the whole apple and toffee, hehe. Aaaand that pearl flourish? New for me, but I'm loving how it makes the image pop! :D
