Here is my card for this week's challenge


I have used the cute Tulip Umbrella digital stamp from Miss Daisy Stampsand added lots of layers with Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 39. 
Here are some close-up pics to show the sparkle and dimension.

I coloured the umbrella with Copic Cotton Candy RV52.

The rest of the tulip umbrella image was coloured with Zig Wink Of Stella Glitter Pens.  The tulips were a combination of red & pink, the stems dark green, the leaves a green & dark green, the flowers orange & red, with yellow in the centres, the dots dark pink, the handle & knobs brown and last but not least, the ribbons & bow violet.  I was impressed with how these sparkling pigment ink pens blended.  For the smallest points of each element, I added a dot of ink from the pen and used my piercing tool to drag the colour to the points.

I applied clear Wink Of Stella to the body of the umbrella and the white layers to add some sparkle to match the colouring.  

I added a some layers of foam for extra dimension between the layers.
