Lili of the Valley Challenge
This week our challenge is a Fabulous Sketch by our lovely Dawny P who's sketches are always such a joy to use
Our prize is once again donated by Laila and Lisa from Lili of the Valley a very generous £10 voucher to spend on the Website, thanks again Girls xxxx
Lots of pictures today, I am afraid, I got carried away making this card and really went to town on both the front and inside. Sorry about the poo photo, when will I ever learn for some reason I find Red really difficult to capture in a photo. I have used Lili of the Valley “Love Grows “ stamp for this little Valentines card and have used Copics to colour the image. The papers are from a Tilda 12x12 Paper Pad from Panduro.
I have gone overboard with the flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, as you can see. A Martha Stewart Punch was used for the hearts, and the lovely Rose Silk 32mm ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl, I never feel my card is quite finished unless it has a few Wild Orchid Flat Back Pearls somewhere on it :). The Sentiment is by Lili of the Valley.
I carried the heart theme onto the inside of the card, I bought these gorgeous Kraft paper Pockets from The Ribbon Girl, I just liked the look of them and had no idea what I was going to do with them (are you guilty of things like that). I stamped all over the pocket with A LOVE text stamp inked with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink, then adhered a Distressed Doily to the flap, and added a Bow using the same ribbon as on the front.
Another Lili of the Valley sentiment was stamped onto plain white card and cut with deckle edged scissors and distressed with the Victorian Velvet DI and matted onto matching paper and card, then slipped into the little pocket.
The copics used:
Flesh E21, E00, E0000, Hat, Dress & Flowerpot R59, R39, R37, R35, Apron E43, E40, Hat & Trousers E74, R71, E70, E40, Tree YG93, YG91, E40.
