Green & orange Lili of the Valley card!


Hello, everyone!
I evetually chose to make a card with one of my  brand new stamp from Lili of the Valley called "Love grows". I'm really fond of these cute tiny stamps and it's a pleasure to color them. I've used all the markers listed above plus R22 and R02. The image is mounted with foam pads on a circle scalloped nestie and a Marianne D creatable. the LOTV sentiment is cut with a heart punch and I used MS doily lace punch to obtain the frame around it following a tutorial on Norma's blog. Great tutorial! Thank you, Norma!
The flowers are WOC. I usually buy white roses then airbrush them to get a certain color - so the bigger one is airbrushed with copic ink. The leaves are handmade and the lace and ribbon are from stash. I have those dew drops in stash for many years. Bought them with about 1 euro somewhere in Hungary and I still have about half a kilo:)) They are transparent but I colored them with copics and voila:)


 And an "artsy" one:)


Here are the challenges I have for this card:
The Secret Crafter Challenge- It's a couple Thing 
Wild Orchid Challenges- Let's get sentimental
Wee Memories - Free your creativity


Thanks for visiting and for your lovely comments!
