Lili Of The Valley- The Charleston!

Hey crafting buddies!

How goes it? Hope you're all doing good and managing to fit in some crafting time this week. I'm focusing on some Christmas Project Life this week but have quite a few cards I haven't posted yet so today I'm going to share this LOTV stamp called Charleston...

Such a cute image! I coloured using copics and the no-lines technique- a first for me! Yes, I know I'm waaaaay behind the curve but I never seem to have the time to try a new technique. Course, once you've done it once- you're sorted!! I glued a piece of black cardstock to fit a card blank and then glued 2 pieces of patterned paper together to be slightly smaller in size. I then cut an aperture and raised the patterned paper panel up on foam tape. I glued the image to the card blank and adhered the patterned paper panel on top. I stamped out the "anniversary" and die-cut the "happy" in black cardstock and covered it with Pico Embellisher to give it shine. Finally added some recycled trim and burgundy hot fix crystals. I thought the font on the sentiment and the trim looked quite art deco to match the image.

Here's your close up!

Thought I'd enter this into the LOTV Facebook Challenge. See you soon and thanks for dropping by today! x
