Special Things

This is a really cute card that I have made with one of my new 'impulse buy' Lili of the Valley stamps.

I actually bought quite a few Lili of the Valley stamps at the Alexandra Palace show back in September, and believe it or not, I have only just got around to using this one. Can't believe I left it so long.

Anyway, I digress...

I decided I liked the idea of stamping onto brown wrapping paper and then colouring with my Derwent pencils as I really love the vibrancy of the colours that results.

The sentiment stamp is by Hero Arts and was a present from my good friend Sarn, many... many moons ago. I decided to keep the card CAS so that the main focus would be the fabulous colours of the image and the really cute image itself. So I added nothing else other than the two ribbons that run along the bottom of the card.

Here is a close up of the image so that you can see the different colours I have used to create light and shadow. I haven't blended any of these colours as the wrapping paper soaks the Sansodor up too quickly and leaves a mark so I scrapped that idea straight away.

Hope you like my card and thanks for stopping by on this beautiful Sunday morning.
