Lily Pad Challenge

Yay for Friday! And yay... for waking up with no sneezing. So far.... 

Now, it's time for a new Lily Pad Cards challenge sponsored by Letraset. This time Virginia provide this gorgeous inspiration pic to get our creativity juice going.

And here's my flowery card.


For this card, it just looks like I did a kissing technique. But, I really didn't. I already stamped and colored the flowers, when I felt like it still need a bit more oompph... Then, I remember last month Hero Arts challenge where you stamp a background using white ink to create a velvety look. It's not quite that technique either, as I decided to stamp the musical score with white ink after the card is almost done. Hah... Sometime I just improvise to get the card to the way I want it.

In real life, you could see the white musical background continue onto the white cardstock giving it an extra pattern, so it doesn't look so boring. ;)

Check out what the DT gals created for this challenge at Lily Pad Cards and join us for this fun challenge as who knows you would be the lucky one to win the awesome prize.

Also, today is my day at May Arts blog and I created a non-card project. Say what??? Yes, I decided to try to make a wreath, but still combining it with some stamping. Can't take me away from my stamp. Here's a peek at the wreath.



Please check  out the post HERE and I would so love you if you kindly leave some love for my post at May Arts blog.

Thank you so much and have a FABulous Friday everyone.

Incredible Vera....at first I thought the flowers were paper pieced and then I read your description. Absolutely beautiful!!!

It's beautiful Vera!

Anette said...

Gorgeous and elegant!! I didn't really "catch" the velveteen stamping technique, it didn't turn out so well... I'll give this a go instead, love the look!!!!
