Michelle's WT Challenge was to make "green cards". Cards for St. Pat's would seem a natural, but mine are already in addressed envelopes ready to mail.....so I moved on to a card for Easter. This Hero stamp lays down an inked bg. I applied the Celery and Gumball inks, then spritzed with water before putting it to paper. The lilies-of-the-valley were then colored with Copics.

I'm in awe of your work with that stamp and the incredibly beautiful shading of the lilies! Coloring the negative areas of the stamp is brilliant! You used the dies to compliment this so beautifully. You are an amazing designer, Sallie!

The way you colored the lily of the valley image it looks like a vintage lithograph, this is absolutely gorgeous. And the intricate die cut frame and delicate vine tucked in behind all draw the eye to the star of the show, the pretty flowers - lovely design! And clever of you to split the embossed background and define the space you needed for the die cut with scor lines. Into my fav's for future reference! TFS
