Blue Lilies

Hi Everyone

What a change in the weather!  Not good, especially if you are visiting the Kent County Show this weekend.  I am busy finishing off my assignment which is due tomorrow.  Before that, I am posting a card I have made for a friend who asked me to make a card for her Mum's 60th.

She was really pleased with the result and |I hope her Mum will like it too.
I used a digital stamp for the lilies which I coloured and decoupaged to create a 3D effect.  To make the card I used the corner die from Heartfelt Creations.  Hope you like it.
Have a good weekend. Kx

Lavinia Stamps Challenge - Summer Colours

Hi Everyone

Hope you are all enjoying the summer.  July is here so we are set for another fantastic month of all your wonderful creations for the Lavinia Stamps Challenge.  Last month Sarah won the great prize of £40 worth of Lavinia Stamps for her fantastic entry, pop over and have a look.

Here is my sample for this month's challenge which is Summer Colours:

For the background I used the following Distress Inks, ripe persimmon, barn door and mustard seed which I swiped on a craft mat and sprayed with water then swiped over the card.  I used picked raspberry and shaded lilac in the same way.  I then used some of the great Zen stamps - there are some fantastic stamps in this range. 

Hope you like it - I think you will agree they are definitely summer colours!

Enjoy the rest of the week and good luck with the challenge.  Kx
