Charming Lillies


Today I am sharing another post for the CCC Digi Creations, where our sponsor this fortnight is


I chose this lovely Lily and Butterfly image to work with for challenge #7 which is Use a Charm or Pin with a digi image.

After colouring the image with Prisma coloured pencils, I fussy cut it and mounted  it on foam tape over a piece of paper that I had chalked clouds onto, and had randomly stamped with the sentiment.

To add a touch of pizzazz I touched the centre of the petals and the edge of the butterfly wings with Ice Stickles.

The charm was tied onto a narrow ribbon that was mounted over a wider, darker one.

Some confetti stars were added as a final detail.
