WT183 White Gel Pen

Hello everyone~,
Today's challenge is Way To Use It 183 -- Use white gel pens!
Not only I love white gel pens, but also I love any kinds of gel pens period! When I was a high school student, I used to go to the Japanese stationary stores and bought the new gel pens and markers. They are my treat and I saved money for them, lol.
My friends and I used to exchange the letters (no e-mails or text messages that time) and we always used gel pens to write and draw all kinds of stuff. I still love using them and so does my daughter. Everytime my gel pens are diappeared from my work station, and I find them in her room, lol.

今日のチャレンジは、「Way To Use It 183 -- 白ジェルペンを使う」です。

For this card, I used the white gel pens for highlighting the dry embossed image.
I used Cuttlebug embossing folder for the dry embossing. Cuttlebug's embossing folders are awesome!! You can make a great backgrounds with no time! After I made the embossed panel, I just started to draw the lines like making the shadows. I think the lines give such a interesting look on the embossed image.

The flowers were stamped and cut out. I curled the petals to look more 3-D.
The sentiment were stamped with VarsaMark and heat embossed with the white embossing powder.
