My stamp is called Summer Dreams and I coloured it with Prismacolour pencils. There are tutorials at the end of this post which you might check out if you are interested in how I colour with Prismas.
There is also loads of laser cut chipboard on this card - I just dabbed it with white ink pad.
The papers I used are from new Basic Grey Out Of Print pad. I made the flowers myself from the gauze fabric and glue-gunned pear string onto those.
I distressed all the papers and lightly edged them with Stickles. Also used loads of flat-backed pearls.

I will add the tutorial videos here later today once they have finished uploading to Youtube. I actually did that yesterday but they got rejected so I had to re-edit them! :(
