TIOT21 - Lily Goes To A Party

Welcome to another Try it out Tuesday from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design and the SCACD store blog!! This week DT leader Suzanne Dean challenged us to create a Summer Party Invitation.

I thought about this one for awhile and decided to reach for this fabulous Enchanted Lily set from Pink Cat Studio. To me she is just SCREAMING "Garden Party" from her backyard swing!

I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black, then colored with watercolor Copics. I added some touches with the with the white gel pen after she was all colored in. I stamped her again on a piece of scrap white cardstock and recolored her wings. I then painted them with Angel Wings Shimmerz, cut them out, and placed them over the top of the original image. I glued down the part that was closest to her body and used foamie dots to pop up the outside to give it more dimension. The camera didn't capture it very well but the wings are nice and sparkly!

My sketch comes from this week's layout at Taylored Expressions {TECC70}. It worked great for this image and I found a tiny little "It's a Party!" sentiment to compliment the card in one of my Inky Antics sets. Viola! I just love these happy summer colors. :-)

Be sure to visit the SCACD store blog today for more inspiration from the rest of the DT, and then swing over to the store to stock up on all the latest and greatest goodies!! In addition to all the great stamps and well-known favorite accessories, Susana has a great selection of the new Shimmerz Spritz in stock. This is GOOD STUFF!! No more painting Shimmerz onto flowers, a couple quick squirts and you are in business! Great coverage, no clumps, lumps, bleeding, dark spots, etc. It dries fast and gives so much sparkle. I love it! I can already tell from the few I have that I NEED all the colors. {Right now.}

;-)

Thanks for stopping by today! See you tomorrow!
