Lili Of The Valley (LOTV) - April #1

Morning everyone💜

Today I want to share my 1st Lili Of The Valley (LOTV) cards, for April. To continue the Spring theme I've used digi stamps from the Spring/Easter release - the rabbit is called 'Spring Rabbit Posy', all the flowers are from 'Flower Alphabet' and finally the sentiment is from Everyday Greetings. All the digi stamps are available from the Etsy store as an instant download. However, if you prefer rubber stamps they are available as A5 stamp sheets and include other stamps, please see below for the links.

I used Caran D'ache pencils to colour my spring scene and kept my card really simple. I hope you like it. x

For your information, here is the link to the LOTV online store and the LOTV Etsy Store to check out the rest of their goodies.

Here's What I Did
I covered the front of a 5½" x 5½" white scalloped card blank with a soft green card, leaving an exposed edge. Using my graphics software I created a double border edged square, and imported the cute rabbit, sentiment and flowers inside it. The digi images were then resized and arranged to create a scene and printed directly onto Neenah card and coloured with pencils. When finished the topper was trimmed down and mounted onto the card front.

Tip --  I lightly used a white pencil in the areas where I wanted the highlights to be, then used a coloured pencil over the top

Gorgeous card Janine! Love the sweet image and your colouring on the kraft card is so lush hunny. I love this to bits! Those sweet blooms all around are so lovely coloured in their bright hues. Such a pretty card. Hugs, Wends xoxo
