Iam sooo into creating Christmas cards right now…lol I decided to join in with this weeks LILI OF THE VALLEY CHALLENGE which is this sketch.
These sort of sketches ‘scare me’ lol It’s the whole layer on layer thing. Iam ‘trying’ to get over me fear of these sort of sketches though…lol I decided to join in with this one though so as to use me gorgeous Lili of the valley stamp.
Today was my gorgeous li’l Chloe monsters 1st day of ‘BIG’ school.
She still seems just too little to be at big school, she isn’t even 5 until January. For the next 2 weeks she goes from 8.50am until 1.20pm, then after 2 weeks she will be going from 8.50am until 3.20 pm. She had her 1st ever school dinner today and when she came home she was so pleased with herself because she managed to carry her own dinner tray without spilling any food
………..So while she was at school i decided to make a Christmas card for her using the lili of the valley sketch. Here is what i made
I love the way that this turned out in the end. Iam LOVIN this colour combo and can see me using it a LOT! The image has been coloured using prisma pencils. It’s the 1st time i’ve used that bluey/turqoisey coloured pencil and i LOVE it. The wooden snowflake is smothered in glitter but the pic doesn’t show just how sparkly this is. The papers are a mixture of basic grey/bo bunny and papermania. The ribbon and button from stash (coloured button with copics)
