Lily of the Valley Little Bears Snowmen



Hello stampers,

I'm thrilled to finally finish one of my new beautiful Lily of the Valley stamps!  I love all of the LOTV images - they are so sweet.  The Christmas release is no exception - and the little critters are adorable!

I've tried to use as much deep shadowing as I could fit into the small areas, and I've picked up traditional Christmas colours from the My Mind's Eye "Lost & Found Christmas" 6x6.  Here I've used some Prima Printery flowers (one of my favourite releases from this fall - I have a drawer full - so I don't run out)



This was my first time (aside from Suzanne Dean's class) that I've used my Copics on Cryogen paper.  It was definitely different, and I had to be very careful, as you can't use the colourless blender to fix mistakes.  But I do like the result.  I LOVE the shimmer of the paper and the heavier weight of it.

I've combined my love of Distress inks - and inked all the edges in Antique Linen (which I use for almost everything).  I think it suits the look nicely.

I've added a few rhinestones and a little bit of diamond Stickles on the snow.


Very handy for me, the sentiment was already on the paper!  I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
