Lili Visits Colour Create & Cute Card Thursday

dscf6539

Good morning and hope you're having a lovely Friday.

Today I'd like to show you my DT card for Inky Impressions. There's a fabulous sketch to follow on The Sugar Bowl and I just had to use this for my card. I've followed the colour scheme over on Colour Create where this week it's Grassy Green, Apple Green, Sunflower Yellow, Lemon and White. Also on Cute Card Thursday the theme this week is stitches, so as I haven't got a sewing machine I added faux stitches.

The image I've used for my card is the adorable Lili which is available from Inky Impressions. She is such a dream to ink up as the stamp is sooooooooo deeply etched and every little detail comes out.

The flowers I made myself by using various punches and dies. For the roses I've found a fantastic tutorial, so here's the link if you want to have a go http://meholder.blogspot.com/2009/03/paper-flower-tutorial.html

Card Recipe:

    • Image = Lili from Inky Impressions
    • Ink = Memento Tuxedo Black & ProMarker Pens
    • DP = BasicGrey Porcelain
    • Flowers = DIY
