Lily - Springtime

I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas! Yesterday I enjoyed the day with all six of the grands, their parents, my sister and her husband and my neice and her fiance. Needless to say, it was pretty wild around here! And sooooo much fun!

I took a day off work today to recover! LOL! I enjoyed the afternoon with my best friend. We exchanged gifts, then went to lunch. Really, just enjoying each other's company. I also had a little stamping time, so I decided to try out one of the new stamps that arrived in the store a few days ago.

This stamp is from Stampavie and is designed by Rachelle Ann Miller. It's called Lily - Springtime .

I stamped on watercolor paper using Versafine Onyx Black ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder. The stamped image was colored using Tombow (water based) markers and a damp paint brush. I used my Stardust Gelly Roll Pen to add a little sparkle to the butterfly and flowers.

The designer paper is Pop Fashion from Pink Paislee. The cardstock is Twilight Prismatics medium and Intense Pink Prismatics . I punched flowers from the designer paper and cardstock, then layered them to embellish.

The layout is Jen DelMuro's sketch. You can see it HERE .

Thanks once again for stopping by. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

what a darling little image and so perfectly colored too! I love the dsp and punched borders!
I'm so glad you made time to have lunch with your best friend. There's nothing better than a little one-on-one girlfriend time as far as I'm concerned. I look forward to seeing those pictures of the grands :)
