Sadly this is not the only Lili of the Valley stamp I have that hadn't been inked yet. I hope to put the rest of them to use very soon. This one is called "Best Friends" and it was a dream to color, especially since it got stamped on a piece of the brand new pack of Copic Express-it blending card I just got. I've been using Gina K and there is a huge difference. The Copic paper was incredible to blend on. I was worried at first because everything seemed so dark, but as it dried or soaked into the paper it looked fine.
For my papers I used a combination of DCWV and the gorgeous GCD Studios Ella Blue stack. Love that brown and blue combination. The rose on the front of the envelope is my first try at a new style of rose made using the Retro Flower punches. I was pleased at how it turned out for a first try and I'm sure they'll get better with practice. I colored some white cardstock with a couple of the blue Copics I used on the image so the rose and little flowers would match the image and papers. I also used my Copics on the pearls.
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Lili of the Valley--spring
ABC Challenge--roses (there's the one I made and the DP paper has blue roses on it)
House of Gilli--ribbon and pearls
Sugar Creek Hollow--stitching
