It's A Sketch .....

...challenge over at Lili of the Valley. Pops has designed a sketch, it's challenge # 110 and here is what she came up with. Awesome sketch Pops!


Having just received an order of gorgeous stamps from Lili of the Valley I thought it was a perfect challenge to enter. Lili of the Valley's next set of Christmas Stamps come out Tuesday Sept. 6th so watch for them.
Can't wait!

The stamp is "Make it Festive" by Lili of the Valley, it's just darling! I pulled out my Christmas designer papers from K & Company and decided which papers I wanted to use with this image. I cut a large circle using the standard large circles die from Spellbinders. I thought it would look nice to have the edge of the circle embossed as well so I embossed it using the tan mats. Memento Tuxedo Black ink was used to stamp the image. The colours on the image were matched to the colours of the designer papers using Copic markers. To finish the card I added K & Co. Poinsettia embellishments.

I'm also entering this card into the challenges

  4. Hi there, Gorgeous card, love the little girl, fab colouring and beautiful papers, Gay xxx

  5. OMG, I almost fainted clean away when I saw the sketch! Then I scrolled down once I clambered back onto my chair and saw what you made - totally stunning my little Elf! I've got that Christmas stamp too and only hope I can do as good a job as you did! Beautiful :)

    A cheats quick way to emboss round the edge of a Nesties die (particularly those that aren't all lace-like holes) without scrabbling to find your tan mat: Leave the card in the die when you've cut it and then run a rounded end embossing tool round the embossing line. Me likes short cuts! Hugs, Di xx

  6. Lovely to see you've been playing with your new goodies - beautiful card.
