Lili of the Valley challenge

How did it get to Thursday already?  Where did Monday go to?  So it’s Lili of the Valley challenge day today and our challenge this week is romance.  We have two prizes up for grabs too this week – we have our Lili of the Valley voucher plus a delish prize from Wild Orchid Crafts.  So get your LOTV cuties out and get inky lol

I have used my favourite image of the latest release – Together Forever.  And I dug out some old K & Co paper pads (my favourites of course).  The locket is from a Spellbinders Heritage die set, I die cut it from peach card then inked it up with tea dye ink before removing the die cut from the die to make the embossing pop.  The seam binding started life as flesh, I spritzed it with Cherub Pink glimmer mist then dabbed tea dye ink on it before scrunching then leaving it to dry.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, I used a hellebore, 25mm tea rose and 15mm roses.  All blinged to within an inch of their lives.

The Tim Holtz adage ticket that got the inking and scrunch treatment, then I cut a spiral clip in half and glued it to the ticket.

That’s it from me today, hope you will join in on the challenge.
