A Whole Bunch of Lily Of The Valley

Morning folks and what a morning it is for the start of the Bank Holiday. Blowing a gale, pouring with rain and freezing cold. If I didn't have to go out today I wouldn't.

As promised I'm back this morning with more Sheena samples, this time of beautiful Lily Of The Valley. Sorry if I'm a piccy heavy but I really enjoyed this stamp and just had to share all the samples I made as I couldn't choose a favourite.

The first will look familiar. I loved the bluebell card I made all in H20's so much that I had to do each flower on a similar theme so I ended up with a matching set.

The second one is the bleached technique using Distress Inks. I stamped the flowers and then masked them out before stamping the leaves and just loosely colouring them with cut and dry foam. I just wanted an impression and then the delicate little flowers to be the detail. The top part of the card was sprayed with gold radiant rain pourables I have decanted into a mister bottle. You have to have a bit of mica don't you?

And lastly I saw an image of a plate with Lily of The Valley all round the edge on my travels and wondered how to recreate it so I made a circular easel card. Everything was stamped in Peeled Paint Distress ink.

Don't forget to catch Sheena's shows if you can tomorrow at 10am and 3pm. I know she has got some gorgeous demos planned.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your Friday.

Beautiful cards Lisa, so well designed and made. It's a favourite for me as DD2 wore Lily of the Valley in her hair for her wedding so I always try to link it into her anniversary cards. Can't believe it is 12 years now.
Love Jo x
ps she's 20 weeks now with the little chap!

All gorgeous card Lisa. Amazing how you've got three very different cards from the same stamp. Love the clean fresh look of the 'plate impression' one. I wouldn't mind some crockery like that myself.

Gorgeous, all of them! What fabulous samples. I am sure Sheena was delighted with them. I have recorded it to watch later as we have been out to take my samples to inkylicious and to buy Meg a prom dress - too scary!

Stunning, Lisa. The lily-of-the-valley stamp might just be my favourite. Your samples are simply gorgeous. Elizabeth xx
