Lili of the Valley challenge and another sneaky peek

We have a fab new sponsor on Lili of the Valley challenge this week, just check out this delish prize sponsored by The Ribbon Girl! (no we don't Bev got it wrong!!!! The Ribbon Girl is sponsoring our challenge next week lol - go back into your corner Bev!). This week the prize is a voucher from Lili of the Valley to spend in their store.

I have used another of the soon to be released images (not long now girlies ……. 5 days and counting!!) Each time I colour one of the new stamps it’s my favourite, till I ink up the next one – so contrary.

The gorgeous papers are My Minds Eye Lost and Found Madison Avenue (striped paper) and Lost and Found Market Street (floral paper). They are soooo glittery IRL, love love love these papers. I have used a few different dies on this card, the usual round nesties and the Magnolia Doo Hickey Tilda Lace and a Marianne D Corners die.

The image has been coloured with Copics:
Skin: E21, E00, E000, R21
Hair: Boy – E33, E53, E51, E50; Girl E29, E25
Girls Clothes, Hat, Shoes, Flowers and Present: E44, E43, E41, E40, R24, R22, R21, R20, R000, G24, G20
Boys Clothes: E47, E44, E42, E40

I made another little heart button (I am loving this technique not that you would have guessed lol). I cut a little heart out from thin chipboard, punched holes for the twine, coated with distress crackle paint then triple embossed with UTEE then edged with walnut stain distress ink. The ribbon is that old seam binding again. I will get some more done on the weekend to give away so keep yer eyes peeled.

I’ve used my favourite flowers – all from Wild Orchid Crafts natch. 25mm tea rose, 15mm roses, 8mm semi open roses, the new gorgeous hip rosebuds and poppies. I have used some of the new rhinestones in the centre of the flowers, like the little touch of bling.
