Lili of the Valley 80

The Lili of the Valley challenge for this week is 'Things with Wings'. I was hoping to have had my new stamps from them to use but so many people ordered in the first couple of days after they were released that they are really struggling to get the orders filled and sent out. Luckily I have this stamp from a couple of years ago which fits the bill exactly.

I coloured the stamped image with Promarkers and I went over the wings, shoes and headdress with a gold Sekura pen. I mounted it on some iridescent paper that I had in my stash and surrounded it with flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. The backing paper I used is from Papermania's Blueberry Hill paper pack and the sentiment is from Craftworks Cards. The ribbon and gems were also from my stash.

I originally had cut out the image with a wider boarder but when I started to put a card together I decided it was too big and so cut it down. In doing this I cut off part of one of the Dandelion Seeds do I used a mapping pen and drew the rest of the design back in making it look as though the seed is flying out of the image. I also thought the wings could do with a bit of a 'lift' so I cut an extra on and decoupaged it .I added a couple of drops of Glossy Accents into the roses to look like dew drops but they did not show up on the photographs.


  1. Very pretty card - never thought of adding a drop of glossy accents to a flower petal before - such a good idea! Why did I neverthink of it!

  2. Love the LOTV stamps. Great card.
