Lili of the Valley challenge card
This is my card for this fortnights Lili Of the Valley challenge blog. The challenge was a sketch challenge.
The fairy stamp is 'Fairy on tiptoe' by Lili of the Valley. She was stamped with Memento ink pad and coloured in with ProMakers. I added highlights to the image with metallic Sakura pens. I also added small dots of crystal Stickles to the background. I used an oval nestabilities to her and the purple boarder out.
I cut a large square of purple card for the background. Onto this I added a panel of purple flower patterned paper from DCWV. The scalloped white panel was punched using Martha Stewart flower edge punch. Onto the panel I added crystal Stickles to add a bit of sparkle. I also attached purple ribbons and a bow across the card.
The greeting is by Stampin'Up. It was stamped using Stampin'Up white kraft ink. Above the bow I added three purple Card Candy by Craftwork Cards.
To follow the challenge sketch I added three flowers to my card. I made these flowers myself using a technique I learnt at my Stampin' Up card group. For more on the original flowers please see
The flowers were made by punching six cirlces using my Stampin' Up scalloped circle punch. I punched two white, light purple and purple circles.
Between each scalloped you make a small cut. You then spritz the circles with water and scrunch up. You then unfold the circles and layer then up and form a flower shape. I used a brad to fold the layers together.
