My GDT Card for Lilley of the Valley


Hello peeps. An exciting day for me today, its my 1st week as Guest Designer over at The Lilley of the Valley Challenge and this week is a great sketch.



Now, I new had a an unused LOTV stamp somewhere and after a rummage found it and think he's a great character. I coloured the image with Copics and for the 1st time, added highlights with Prisma Pencils, love this technique and the pencils just seemed to glide. The papers are all BG, Gypsey and the flowers are Prima. Sentiment is computer generated and printed onto Safmat. The leaves have been punched and used my Nesties. This is a fab sketch and I do hope you can join in with this weeks challenge, the other DT's have come up with some lovely pieces for you to see! Happy Crafting Everyone and a big thanks to the team for giving me this wonderful opportunity!!!

Here is a close up, (click on piccie for a larger image). You can see I have used darker shades of green and an orange Prisma to shade.

Good afternoon Claire, what a truly gorgeous selection of cards since my last visit. I have been reading through your old posts and realized you were at Ally Pally. I am so sorry i didn't get to meet you. I had no idea you were going. I was on the Anna-Marie designs stall opposite the Glitter Girls. Would have loved to have met you, never mind, maybe next time. Hope you are all well. Hugs Linda x
