LOTV Sneaky Peek!!!

Challenges

Secret Crafter (158) - Whimsical

Here is my first sneaky peek of the 28 new stamps being released by Lili Of The Valley on the website on 10th November. However, if you are going to the NEC at the weekend you can grab them earlier!!! This gorgeous stamp is called 'Friends Forever' and comes complete with the little Friends Forever sentiment. I think this set would make an ideal Christmas gift for a special friend.

As you can see I have made an easel card following the great sketch and using lots of layers including a lovely sparkly one under the gorgeous paper from Nitwit Collections. The paper is from the 'Fairytale Dreams Collection'. I have coloured the image with promarkers, chalk and glitter and cut and layered it using a nestie die. I then die-cut and attached a little fence across the bottom. Next I die-cut a climbing plant and added flower gems to it. Next I punched two butterflies, layered them and added another gem. Lastly I added the sentiment.

For the bottom part of the easel I copied the layers from the top part but this time I added another stamped sentiment. I then die-cut some leaves and added more flower gems. Hope you like it, thanks for looking.

Wow this is lovely. Love how you've done the fence border beneath the picture and that flower swirl on the side. Makes the perfect embellishments for this gorgeous image. Thanks for playing at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge and good luck. Hope to see you back sunday for a new challenge. Bettina xx
