Beautiful Lily

Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday!  Today I have a quick share for you, it's the Beautiful Lily Stamp Set from an Altenew/Simon Says Stamp Collab.  This set may have been part of the Stamptember 2022 release, I cannot remember.  It's my first time using it so if you know, please comment below :)

I'm loving the Pantone Color of the Year for 2023 - Viva Magenta and I thought I had it for this floral image but it turned out more pink than magenta.  Oh well, let's roll with it!

To start, I stamped the image and colored with my Prismacolor Pencils.  This set has a matching die and I used it to cut the image.  I then prepared the background panel using the Altenew Watercolor Stripes 6x6 Stencil.  

I did a bit of splattering, mounted the die cut image on craft foam and trimmed the sentiment; this sentiment is part of the Beautiful Lily stamp set.  Lastly, I've added clear sequins for a finishing touch.  

I plan to post this card to my dear friend in the UK for Galentine's Day.  I truly treasure our friendship, even though we've never met in person.  We also speak about meeting up in person some say, I would love to make that happen.

That's all for today friends, until next time - Happy Crafting!
