Lili of the Valley - Fairy Fall Card

While some of you may be celebrating the wonderful change of the season, with the leaves turning into beautiful shades of oranges and reds and even brown, I'm here in Los Angeles sweating my butt off!  Still, Fall is a beautiful season and it should be celebrated :)

I've created a card using one of the first Lili of the Valley stamps that I ever purchased called Fairies - On Tiptoe.  I've actually had this stamp for quite some time now, but never got a chance to ink it up.  It's such a darling image and so fun to color.

In the back, you can see some pattern on the Nestabilities shape.  It's another digital image that will be releasing on October 15th at the Whimsy Stamps Digital Sentiments section called "Fancy Swirly Square" and is Spellbinder Friendly.  There are two versions that come with these digital stamps, one filled in with a sentiment and one that's blank, just in case you wanted to use it for something other than to frame the sentiment.  In this case, I've used it to add some detail around the frame of the image.

Stamp: Lili of the Valley Fairies - On Tiptoe
Coloring Medium: Distress Reinkers with Medium Koi Water Brush
Paper: BasicGrey Indian Summer
Accessories: pearls, Prima flowers, Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, lace
Tools: Cuttlebug Nestabilities Labels 1, Making Memories Paper TrimmerATG adhesive gun
