Traditional & Very Sweet Little Holly :)

Hi there peeps, Dawny P  here and I  and hope the weekend is going well for everyone.

I have a little sneak peek  to share of one of the new Lili Of The Valley  ‘A Very Girlie Christmas’ releases which are going to be with you soon as soon.  The DT have all been giving you little tasters and I’m sure you’ve all picked your faves by now and are waiting for the 6th so you can get your mitts on them .

So today I am going to introduce you to Little Holly….

…  and here she is.

I coloured her with Copics and these are the shades I used -

E000, E00, E21 (skin), E42, E50 (hair), G99, R15, R17, R27, R59, Y0000, Y00, Y17, Y38, YG0000, YG03 (the rest).

Do you like the little scroll?

I made it using the Grunge Music stamp which is one of the Lili Of The Valley Additions Clear Stamps. You can see it here. I heat embossed it using a glittery gold powder and I also used it for the little bit that’s peeping out from behind the image. I heat embossed that piece with an antique gold powder then slightly distressed the edges.

I made a bit of a hash of curling it (you probably noticed lol!!) as I’d used 160gsm paper and it’s a tad too thick, so if I did this again, I’d go for thinner stuff – 120gsm or thereabouts.

Here’s a couple more pics for you …

Hugs to all xxx
