Lili of the Valley #48 & Charisma Cardz #9


Hi girls. Welcome to my corner of cyber space where I display the result of my crafting efforts. I hope that if you have time to have a look around you will find something to your taste.
It was 9 degreesC here today and the sun was shining. I even heard hubby say that if it stayed like this he would get started in the garden this week - we will see!!
I have never made an easel card before so when I saw this Lili of the Valley challenge I thought it was time to have a go. I am also entering it nto the Charisma Cardz challenge where they wanted "Fairies". Truth is that I have to use the LOTV stamps I bought recently. I inked up "Fairy on Tiptoes" and coloured her with my Copics. I used Brown, cream & coffee Bazzil card to layer and matt. The paper is Laundry Line's Coastal "Lucky". The flowers are handmade by me and the background and edges have been distressed with Tattered Rose by Tim Holtz. I have added Stickles and glitter although not a lot of it comes out in the photograph. I have photographed each panel separately to try to show more detail.

The facing panel:-


The visible part of the base panel:-

I enjoyed making this card and will do more easel cards. I hope you like it and that you will have enough time to leave a comment. I love reading what you have to say. It gives me encouragement. Thank you so much for calling in and do have a great day no mattter what you are doing. Stay safe.
Hugs,
