We also have the option of Anything Goes for those of you just wanting to share with us, so feel free to link those up if you like to. Our prize is an Ultimate Glue kit by Stix2 that will go to one lucky participant!

I thought this cute stamp from Lily of the Valley was perfect for the theme. While mine is a rubber stamp, LOTV does have an etsy shop now with many of their stamps converted to digis, maybe this one is one of them.
It's been stamped with Versafine Onyx ink on Bristol Vellum paper and colored with my Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. Some time ago I purchased a pencil coloring class from Kit and Clowder but really should revisit the class as I've already forgotten some of the tips from there...
To make the snowy background I used a mask of the same image (I had this mask from when I used the stamp previously) over the image, flicked some masking fluid over the background then, after it was dry, I inked it up using Weathered Wood Distress ink, then rubbed off the masking fluid with a paper towel.
A lovely image and perfect for the theme this week Ellie, I had it down as a PB so surprised to see it's LOTV.ReplyDelete
