Creative Expressions - Sunny Lilies

Good Morning, how are you today?  It's really dull here in the Midlands UK and has been for a week so I thought I would do a really sunny card for today's creation for the Creative Expressions Blog :-).  Today I have used the gorgeous Creative Expressions Singles by Sue Wilson called Lily Spray, it really is beautiful and great to cut out.  As always I shall highlight all the products from Creative Expressions through the step by step, also don't forget to have a browse at past products at mega cheap prices over at the Craft Clearance Online Shop :-)

And now for the step by step ......................................

On a piece of Creative Expressions Coconut Card Stock and place the
Special Touch Mask Abstract stencil and ink through with Distress Ink 
Spiced Marmalade, Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed.

Here you can see (sorry a bit bright) that I blended the colours
making the middle lighter and the edges darker.

Re place the stencil and spray at a distance Cosmic Shimmer Mist Rich Gold,
then remove the stencil immediately, clean and replace.

Next using Creative Expressions Stamp Set Textures script stamp
with Archival Venetian Orange ink pad through the squares, masking as you go.

Next I used some stampboard I had in my stash and inked as above
and used the same set and ink pad to stamp the script, then I sprayed using the mist.
I show only three here, I must have had a silly moment as I needed four lol.

Next I used Archival Jet Black Ink Pad to stamp the gorgeous
Creative Expressions Singles Stamp by Sue Wilson called Lily Spray
onto the stampboard.

I also stamped them onto some Coconut Card Stock, I did way more then
I needed but I like to have plenty as I tend to colour downstairs so if
I make a mistake I don't have to go and re stamp lol.

I coloured them with Distress Markers Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed,
Spiced Marmalade, Ripe Persimmon, Rusty Hinge, Tea Dye, Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint
and Forest Moss and then cut out and edged with the markers to take the white away.

I took three Creative Expressions Small Metal Leaf Embellishments and
added Creative Expressions Adhesive Sheets on the back, then
I covered them with a mix of Distress Glitter in Spiced Marmalade and Mustard Seed.
When I added them to the card I added the gorgeous Creative Expressions
Crystal Sparklers Embellishment for that extra bling wow factor lol.
Next matt and layer on your card blank :-)

Right I better be off to do some work, will be back tomorrow with some more bright makes to cheer up the dreary weather, I keep thinking maybe if I use yellow and orange it may bring the sun out lol lol lol.
Happy Crafting :-)

Thanks for dropping by and leaving such a lovely comment, it is much appreciated.

Wonderful use of bright sunny colours and the rich gold CS spray on the mask. Your colouring is awesome, i struggle with alcohol markers a lot.

Stunning card Kezzy:-) x
