Lili of the Valley Challenge 107

Hey Everyone

I hope you are all well and enjoying the sunshine - long may it continue.

Today I have inked up one of the new Christmas stamp releases from Lili of the Valley called "Pretty Poinsettia" - and oh my how pretty is she?

I have Glamour Dusted, Stickled, Snow Dusted and Diamond Dusted the card to within an inch of its life!  It's just a shame it really never shows up on the pictures as good as it looks in real life - or it could be me who is still trying to get to grips with how to take a good picture so if anyone has any tips - please help me!

I am entering this card in Lili of the Valley's Thursday Challenge where there is a fabulous sketch to follow from Domi so pop on over and join in.

I've coloured the image with Copics:

Skin:  E21 E00 E000 R20
Poinsettias, Coat & Hat:  R29 R27 R24
Handbag & Boots:  E29 E27 E25
Robins:  E37 E35 E34 R21 R20 R00
Holly & Leaves:  G28 G24 G07
Bag & Scarf:  E42 E40

The background papers are from Memory Box "Mistletoe" collection which I purchased from Quixotic Paperie and you can find them here.  All the flowers, ribbon, spacer, pearls, Diamond Dust and Stickles are from The Hobby House.  The sentiment stamp is also from Lili of the Valley.

Here's a quick close-up picture of the flowers:

I would like to say a big "THANK YOU" to Bev Rochester who showed me how to split and cover poinsettia's with Diamond Dust - so Bev "THANK YOU" you have been a real inspiration to me.

I am also going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Crafty Creations Challenges 129 - where the theme is Christmas in July.
Craft Your Passion Challenge - again, the theme this week is Christmas in July.
Creative Inspirations - and the theme is Christmas in July.
That's it from me today.

See ya later.
