So Much Blessing

Today I chose to use the Easter Lilies set, Wrought Iron Cross and the Decorative Oval Window Die from Heartfelt Creations.

I partially cut out the image using a circle nestabilities die by putting the paper through until the rollers almost touched the Lilies. Then, I cut the flowers out by hand keeping them attached to the circle. I used the Decorative Oval Window Die to frame the image. I cut the die in half and trimmed off the cross bars so all that remained were 2 mirror image curved flourishes. I can see these done in dark grey with some metal accent for a dramatic wrought iron look. Gorgeous stuff!

I coloured the image using copic markers and used pointillism to created depth under the blossoms. I love the look. These are the copics I used for this project;

YG0000, YG01, YG03, YG05, YG07, YG09, YG93, YG95

I have specific instructions including measurements on the Heartfelt Creations blog and, as always, there is a plethora of inspiration from the rest of the design team.

Fabulous colouring work, Loretta! I'm thoroughly amazed that you don't cut through the flowers while cutting out the circle with your Nestie die. Love your beautiful layout and the I really like that soft sponging of grey on the decorative oval.
