Lili Of The Valley - Grace Collection #2

 Hi everyone

I have another of the new 'Grace' Lili Of The Valley digi stamps. The new collection includes both normal black line art and the same images in a pencil sketch format. The pencil sketch images are fainter and would suit no-line colouring, they could be coloured using colour pencils, alcohol pens or watercolours to give a softer look. In the collection there are also a set of extra elements, sentiments and Simply Prints, Art Prints, and now a limited run of polymer stamps. If you would like the stamps you need to pre-order from the LOTV website quickly. I will add the links once the launch has taken place. 

For my card today I have used  the pencil sketch of Grace - Hope, as I felt it as very apt atm. To colour the stamp I again used a few HB pencils, then add a little colour using a couple of pink pencils. It's a very sweet stamp, I hope you like it. 

Remember to stay safe and healthy people. If you are struggling and need a chat please email me as I'm happy to help (my address is on the right). x

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

Here's What I Did
I used a 6" x 6" white scalloped card and matted it with pretty pink patterned card. A strip of dark grey card was die cut with a scalloped border at the top and bottom, then glued across the centre of the card. 

The little girl image and a sentiment were printed directly onto the mixed media card then coloured with HB pens. I used a paper stump to blend the graphite. Pink pencils were used to colour over the top of the HB pencil of the star and her hair ribbons to create a colour tint. The finished image was die cut into a circle and I added to a scalloped circle mat cut from light grey card. Funky foam was glued to the back of the topper, then added to the front of the card.

To complete the card I added 2 large pearls either side of the topper and a little glitter to the star and ribbons.
