Lili of the Valley Challenge and a sneak peek

Did you know we’ve changed the Lili of the Valley challenge to weekly?  And this week the challenge is Seasons.  I took the opportunity to use one of the new Lili of the Valley Christmas Animals collection that is going to be released next week (19th August).  This little cutie is called James the Bear – Sledging Along.  Too cute lol.

I have used the gorgeous new Memory Box Mistletoe papers that I got from Quixotic Paperie last week.  The first lot sold out straight away but I believe Elaine has more stock.  The punched border is one of the new Martha Stewart ATP sets that I got from QVC the other week (their TSV and greedy guts here had to get both options lol).

The poinsettias are from Wild Orchid Crafts and have been glammed up with Cosmic Shimmers Lava Red.  The gold spacers are from Eggstravaganza.

The sentiment is from the Lili of the Valley Christmas Stamp Sheet and is perfect for this image I think.

I went mad with the gold Stickles, and used it on the edges of the papers plus around the image and sentiment.

The image was coloured with Copics and a black and brown Prismacolor pencil:
Bear: E53, E51, E50 and a brown pencil to darken the shadows
Sled: E79, E77, E74, E70 and a black pencil to darken the shadows
Presents: R89, R46, R24, BG99, G85, G82 and black pencil to darken the shadows
Snow: B41, B000, B0000

Thanks for stopping by,
