Lili of the Valley Challenge and an Award


Our challenge this week on Lili of the Valley Challenge is a sketch Challenge. Our very own Domi. There is some brilliant inspirational creations from my fellow DT members (and some sneak peeks of the new LOTV Stamps, I am pleased to tell all those who pre-ordered these stamps that they will be shipping anyday now, and if you didn't pre-order why not pop over to the Lili of the Valley Website and see the complete new range of stamps, at the most incredible price of £3.50 each). We hope you can join us this fortnight. Don't forget it is not necessary to use Lili of the Valley products on your creation
.
Domis lovely Sketch





This is Teddy holding Present from the new Teddy Set of 4 Stamps from Lili of the Valley isn't he cute. He has been coloured with Copics (colours below), and the image cut out with Circle Nesties, the papers are a mix from my stash drawer again. The flowers were actually white but I sprayed them with Lava Red Cosmic Shimmer I added the lovely spacers with a pearl in the middle for some more bling, I just love the result, shame you cannot see how they sparkle IRL. I also sprayed the punched Pine Branch with Olive Vine Glimmer Mist.



Here are the colours of the Copics I used on Teddy


Recipe:
Stamps - Lili of the Valley
Colouring Medium - Copics on Manga Art Board
Tools - McGill Pine Brancj Punch and Circle Nesties available from The Hobby House
Embellies - Flower Centres from Eggstrazaganza rest from stash

An Award


I was given this lovely award by my dear friend Shirley, who is not only a fabulous crafter but also one of the nicest people in blogland thanks Shirley Mwah xxx. In order to accept this award I have to tell you 5 of my Sins (ONLY 5) so here goes

1 - I just cannot give up the dreaded weed no matter how hard I try
2 - I adore Condensed Milk and could eat a whole tin of it in one go!!!! (and often do)
3 - I spend far too much on crafting if I see stamps I like I just have to have them, I have so many stamps here that have not even seen Ink!!!!!
4 - I leave everything to the last minute and am always playing catch up especially with DT projects and cards.
5 - My idea of a good tidy up is stuffing things in drawers and cupboards you take your life in your hands opening one of my cupboards.

Well I hope you don't think too badly of me after this confession :D, I am supposed to pass this award on to 10 people but how could I choose just 10 of you lovely and wonderful friends who visit me everyday so I will just say a big thanks to you all and invite you to take this award.

Have a great day

Thanks for looking
Hugs
Jacqui xx

Don't forget to pop back after 10pm tonight to see who has won my Tilda stamp Candy

Glitter Monkey said...

Hi Jacqui - another beautiful card. I so loved your confessions!! As for the "weed" I smoked for 20 years until I read Allen Carr's "The Easy Way" and it really helped me give up over two years ago. I did go to the Smoking Cessation Clinic though and got patches on prescription for 12 weeks - which made all the difference too. Lol Lynn ♥

Danielle said...

Too cute Jacqui! Love this sweet image and you've done a wonderful job with your copics!
Hugs Danielle
