Watercolored Flower Card with Derwent Watersoluble Metallic Pencils

Today, I made a card using a gorgeous flower stamp.  The stamp is drawn as a poppy, but I stretched the idea of that flower and colored it pink with Derwent Watersoluble Metallic pencils. These pencils, when blended out with water, are not really metallic looking.  If you color on dark cardstock and do not wet, they look a lot more metallic.   However, they blend out really nicely!

I also lined my envelope with a sheet of the same paper I used in the card.  It  is easier than you think!  Here is a tutorial from StampTV.

I love the matching envelope...those design papers are is your card. I have not tried those pencils but they sound versatile. I like that they work on dark or light papers.
