Fun and Bright Lily!


Goodness, how cute did she turn out?! I just love how this card looks! Even used colors I don't normally use...orange. But love it! Anyhow, enough tooting my own horn! LOL! I used the sketch from Eat, Sleep, Stamp. Saw my blogging friend, Rachel, was their guest. She makes some lovely cards, so big woo hoo to her! I'm also entering this in the Flutterby Wed cuz I love to play along there too. It's an open challenge too, so means you only need a butterfly, angel or fairy on your card. I cut out my froggie, flower on her wand, and front flower petals. I dabbed her with stickles. I layered the lily pad and part of the petals with smooch. Just to give it a little shine. I tried to add some spots to my frog with a deep shade of copic green. I like how that turned out too. I love when Amy, from A Thousand Sheets of Paper, does that type of things to her images. She's done it with her mermaids, and I swear, I kept looking for a stamp to see if it was a stamp! But I think I've decided she's using markers to get the look. You can see what I'm talking about on this card here. I think it just looks so cool, and adds just a light touch on the images.
Thanks for stopping by!
Supplies: Nesties, Pink Cat Studio, stickles, smooch, Basic Grey Going Green, SU cardstock, and ink, copics, Martha Punch, primas.
