Lily


It's challenge time again over at Lia Stampz and this time the theme is to create a project with a moving element.


I really struggled with this one and spent sleepless nights wondering what I could do!  It wasn't until my partner saw the image that I was working on and said "she looks as though she's sitting on something, why don't you put her on a swing?"  Well that's it sorted now,  he's my designer now and no more sleepless nights lol :-)

Here's the card that I've created for your inspiration (with the help of my designer) and the image has acetate behind it which has been made into a spring so that the swing goes backwards and forwards.  Hope you like it!



Materials used:

Image - Lily from Lia Stampz
Coloured with promarkers
Distress ink - tumbled glass
Liquid Pearls - lemon yellow
Birds - cut from birds and flowers set embossing folders
