ABC I for In Love

Our challenge for you at ABC this time is In Love. We are sponsored by Lili of the Valley, whose image I have used on my card, with a £10 gift voucher and by Stamp Fairy with a $10 gift voucher.

I In Love 2

As I mentioned above I used a Lili of The Valley image for my card, called Love Balloon’. I coloured it with a combination of promarkers and copics. I am not sure if it’s obvious but I paper pieced her hat. I made a mistake colouring the hat as I mistook some of it for hair, and didn’t want to scrap the work I had put in so quickly stamped it again onto some Basic Grey Kissing Booth paper, I did the same with the balloon too. I used the ranger picket fence distress pen to colour some highlight onto the paper pieced balloon. All the papers are from Basic Grey’s Kissing Booth. The die is from Memory Box and the little shiny flowers and gems were in my stash, but I coloured them with Promarkers to match the colour palette on the card.


I am entering this into the following:-
