LOTV Teddy Stamp, Quickutz Daisy Die and Copic Paper.


Hello, I've been playing with some of my favourite stamps today, Lili Of the Valley.

This is 'Teddy with a Daisy' and I've used Copic Markers along with Polychromos Pencils to colour it in.

I made this card to give to my 'crafty mate' Sheila who is celebrating her birthday TODAY woohoo! Many happy returns Sheila x


Here's a list of the materials I  used.

White Card Stock
Dark Green Card Stock
Fawn Card Stock
Lovely Papers from Basic Grey

Nestabilities Classic Circles Large Set. Second smallest die used to cut the Sentiment.

Quickutz Small Photo Corners
Quickutz Small Flower
Quickutz Daisy
Marianne Creatables leaves from "Flower and Leaves" set

LOTV Teddy with the Daisy Stamp

Copic Paper. This is the first time I have tried this paper and found it was okay (ish) but VERY thin!
I had to back the finished image with white card stock.

I found that the blender pens work much better with my usual IQ super smooth 160gsm paper from Staples or my Neenah card.
I think, in the future, I will stick to the paper and card I normally use instead of the Copic Paper Pad, which cost 'an arm and a leg!
