Lili Of The Valley #58 - A Sketch By Bev

Over at Lili Of The Valley this week, Challenge #58 is a sketch by Bev. Here is Bev's fabulous sketch.
I just couldn't wait to color up the most beautiful stamp I've seen in a long time. I colored up my little darling called "Christmas Candle". I'm so glad that I jumped on these images immediately because this one and many others are completely sold out. But don't fret, more stock is coming in. I colored my baby girl with my copics and added liquid glass on the fur around her face and the pom poms on her scarf. I added glitter to the top of the liquid glass and let it dry. What a great affect you can achieve. I added Martha Stewart snow to the ground to really give it some dimension. I mounted my image on white glitter paper. I created my snowflakes with a combination of Nestibilities snowflake dies and my Martha Stewart die. I added a Doodle Bug Glitter brad in the middle. My bow was created out of some sheer ribbon that I picked up somewhere and in the middle I punched out 2 greeneries with my Martha Stewart punch. I added flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, and added clear glitter stickles to the petals on the flowers. The 3 red baubbles are from Stamping Bella.

My papers were from an amazing paper pack I bought from S.E.I. at Michaels called Winter's Song. I can't wait to get more cards done with some of the other designs papers in the pack.

Well off for a swim, it's getting hot here and the hot flashes don't add much to that. Enjoy the rest of your day.

Hugs xx

Hello Carolyn, your card is so sweet, the image is adorable. I discovered those stamps just lately, here in Montreal, I have not found them... I love your bow with flowers and your snow flakes. The glitter on the pompom and the fur of the hood is sooo cute. Colors are very nice too, I am in love with those non traditional colors! Beautiful work.
Thanks for coming on my blog and leaving such nice words, I am happy you did, it brought me here.

We're on holidays next week so I can use mine during the day. I even went out and bought a pool set at CDN Tire yesterday, has a tube, lounger, mattress and a hammock!!
