LOTV Challenge - Peach and Green!


Hi again! I'm back with a new challenge at Lili of the Valley Challenge Blog.  This week we want to see all your PEACH AND GREEN cards!  Our fabulous sponsor this week is none other than Wild Orchid Crafts. That means there will be one fantastic prize!!!

For this card I wanted a "Kathy look"! haha! She knows how much I love her work and I thought it would be fun to try her shabby look.   Mine doesn't look near as good as hers, but it was fun making it. I downloaded this freebie paper from Bearly Mine Designs, isn't it beautiful??? I used White Picket Fence Crackle paint around all the edges of all the paper and even used it a bit on the flowers!




This gives the flowers and paper a little "shabby" look. It's always fun to try something new.

You can see the paper blooms that I have embellished with chalk and pearl stamens from Wild Orchid Crafts.  They look a little like daisies and were a perfect compliment to the larger roses.



The little image is called "Fairies - On Tiptoe" colored in copics and can be found at the Lili of the Valley shop.

Hey there Dena! I've been away again (been scheduling my posts) and now I'm back and trying to catch up again. Love this LOTV fairy with the pretty floral paper and gingham strip. You did the shabby thing really well! Love that white paint and those pretty flowers! Hugs, Lesley
