Lil Of The Valley - 'Old but New' Stamps #2

Hi everyone 

I hope you're all keeping safe and healthy, and now starting to venture out. I've had some strange experiences over the past week, which really shouldn't be weird but just feel that way eg having my hair cut and coloured for the first time in 4 months, travelling in a car with my friend (be it with a face mask on) and going out for lunch. I have to admit to feeling pretty vulnerable and scared to start with, but felt happy that I did it. Anyhow make sure you continue to stay safe and healthy. x

Right, onto my card for today. The one I'm sharing with you was made using 2 previous launched digi stamps from Lili Of the Valley (LOTV). Both stamps were launched about a month ago and are available in their Etsy shop (link below). Today's card is a CAS one using the 'You Are My Sunshine' stamp, which I coloured with Prismacolor Pencils (no blender).

Here is the link to the LOTV Etsy Store to check out all the digi stamps and products availableand the LOTV online store to check out the rest of their goodies.

Here's What I Did
To start with I totally covered the front of a 6" x 6" card blank with some beige dotty paper.

Using my graphics software I imported the cute little bear image and a sentiment into it, then resized it to fit my project. The image was printed directly onto colouring cardstock and die cut into a square. The image was coloured in using pencils and mounted onto a brown scalloped die cut mat; funky foam was glued to the back and attached to the centre of the card front. White pen was added to the centres of the flowers.

To finish off I added a few gems to the bottom of the card.

Oh my this is so beautiful, coloured perfectly. I love the brown scalloped die you have used, it makes the image 'pop.' Have a great weekend and I look forward to seeing more of you lovely makes.
