Baubles and stars

Lizzy has just released some new Whimsy stamps last week and we got to play with them this week to give your some inspiration.  You can find them in the Lizzy Love collection

As soon as I saw this background stamp (stars and baubles) I knew what I wanted to do.

The image has been coloured with ProMarkers and then I've sprinkled lots of glitter onto the baubles.
Here's the CAS card I produced.  The design paper is a fairly plain one from Lili of the Valley.

I've doodled around the edge of the card to give it a border.

The Merry Christmas sentiment look a bit of work.  It's a woodchip one from Hobby Crafty.  At first I just tried to colour it with ProMarkers.  The colours weren't striking enough to go with the image, so, I painted it with some gesso.  Once dried I coloured it again with ProMarkers.  I had to give it a good three layers of colour but this is the result.  Also I edged it with a black artists pen - you need a VERY steady hand for that!!

Hope my CAS card has given you a bit of inspiration today
