FSS-Lily of the Valley

Hi Ho Pretty Peoples! I have another fabulous Fred She Said image to show you!

If you hopped along with us on Monday, you probably saw some wonderful projects with this Lily of the Valley image. If not click HERE for the hop...it continues through the weekend!

Stamps: Fred She Said digital (Lily of the Valley)
Papers: SU! cs, Kaisercraft DP
Ink: koh-i-noor pencils,
SU! pad ink for distressing
Other: scissors for distressing,

I just love these new flower images and I'm not even a flowery type person! I have inky thumbs not green ones! I had fun creating this card using my favorite style, CAS (clean & simple), and technique, distressing!

Here are a few challenges...

Alrighty then, I'm off to get my fingers inky using a real rubber stamp, not a digi.....amazing isn't it?! Have a thoroughly thrilling Thursday!

Well no one would know you don't have a green thumb because you've made these babies bloom beautifully! I love your little bow, and the way you've outlined the image really lets the white of the flowers pop!

Marlene said...

Oh so beautiful!! I have a black thumb (just ask my hyacinth...that has only been in my house for less than two weeks).

Chrissie said...
