I love Lili of the Valley stamps

Greetings dear blogfriends... I made these 2 cards a while ago and was going to send them to a local magazine for publishing, but decided against it for personal reasons...

I thought they are just too cute not to share, so here they are for my and your enjoyment.  I just love these Lili of the Valley stamps and will have to start taking part in some of their challenges. I've ordered some of their new Christmas ones and can't wait for them to arrive.

Image coloured with Copics. Kept this very clean and simple.

Added loads of Rangers Stardust to the water to give it a bit of a shimmer. Just love this cute stamp. I don't own many male stamps and have decided that I must have a good balance, so you'll be seeing a few more  male cards between all the girls every now and again!

I used my new Nellie Snellen die for this cutie pie. Just love it and can't wait to use it again. Image coloured in with Copics. I used the Blender a lot to get the whiter look, seeing that we don't have all those 000 /0000 pens in SA right now.

Thanks for popping around and leaving a comment. It really makes it all worthwhile. 

hugs Sharon x

Sharon, these cards are stunning. I love both of them. Your coloring is beautiful. I have some copic markers but not very good at coloring with them. I wish there was somewhere to take a class on them around here. btw- Thank you so much for the comment on my blog. Your prayers are so much appreciated.
