Lili Of The Valley - Vintage Boys Stamps Sneaky Peak

Hi everyone

So today I'm sharing a sneaky peak of one of four fabulous new Lili Of The Valley (LOTV) vintage boy/male digi stamps being launched in their Etsy store.

So for my card today, I've used 'To The Top' which I coloured with Copic pens, and one of the sentiments from the previously released 'Happy Birthday Pots' collection. I hope you like it. x

If you're not really keen on colouring or need a card in a hurry, Lili Of The Valley offer the same image but pre-coloured in different sizes, simply download, print and cut out. See the link below :)

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 trimmed down a piece of dark green jacquard patterned paper from an old LOTV paper pad, and added it to the front of my 5" x 7" black top fold card blank leaving a slim border around the edge.

A scallop edged rectangle was die cut from green card and then an oval was die cut out of the centre to create an aperture. Using the same oval frame and a slightly larger one I die cut a frame from kraft card and stuck this around the aperture window. Funky foam was added to the back of the rectangle to raise it up, ready to be attached to the card front.

I imported the lovely boy hiker digi stamp  and sentiment into my graphics program, then resized them to fit the my project. The image was then printed directly onto colouring card stock and trimmed down. The image was coloured in using Copic pens.apart from the sky. The image was printed out again onto white copier paper and fussy cut out, this placed over the top of the coloured in images using a non-permanent tape runner. Whilst the boy image was covered, clouds were added using blue distress ink and a cloud mask. When the ink was dry the picture was lined up with the aperture and glued into place and then everything was attached to the front of the card.

To finish my card I added 3 fishtale banners and a few gems.
