Lili of the Valley Challenge 84–Sketch by Dawny






This is a card for my SiL's Birthday (on Valentine's Day) which I'd like to enter in LOTV's weekly challenge.  I enjoyed using Dawny's sketch for this one and am pleased with the result.  Instead of Promarkers I've used Aqua Markers on watercolour card to colour the image of 'Rosy with a cake'. I wasn't too happy with the card itself as it went bobbly with the pens being used directly on it. It was recommended by Sheena Douglas too - in fact this was my third attempt at colouring, I tried distress inks first.  Will post the other 2 tries later.
I made the flower embellishment from Bazzil card - put 3 flower punched shapes through a ribbler about 10 times and separate each layer into 2 before scrumpling up and fixing with a brad.
Recipe:
Lotv stamp - Rosy with cake
Bp - Basic Grey - Eva
Aqua Markers
Bazzill card
QVC base card (120 scalloped cards for 11.99 - excellent value)
Paper cellar - rafia lace
Ticket - Whimsy stamp and die
Fiskars and Nellie Snellen punches
Pearls and stickles
