I'm cracking on with the Christmas cards, I'm up to 19 now! I bought this sweet Lili of the Valley stamp last year but found it quite hard to colour because of all the tiny details. This year I have fine nibs for my Promarkers and it was much easier! I put dots of red Stickles on the holly berries and some gold Liquid Pearls on the hanging star.
I apologise for the wishy-washy image, I was using a Daylight Lamp and the inks look a bit faded :(
The papers are also Lili of the Valley, from their 'Classic Christmas' pad. I got out my dies for this one - a Marianne Christmas tree which I covered in white and gold glitter; a Marianne Christmas sentiment, also glittered - it shows up better irl, but I really should have used a slightly brighter paper; and a Whiff of Joy holly die, the paper is pearlised and I Glossy Accented the berries.
I'm entering the Sunday Sketch and Stamp Challenge, it's a lovely sketch, so useful! Though I hope it's ok that the central image is oval and not round;
and Lili's Little Fairies are askink for 'All things bright and beautiful' - in other words, bright colours. What a great challenge for a gloomy day!
Time for a cuppa now, and a spot of ironing to keep warm!
Stay well, and thanks for looking!
