Letters and Postcards From Lily Herself

Hello Everyone
If you are a visitor to my Blog then chances are you will have seen me share one or possibly two or even three or four (!) DT posts featuring Oxford Impressions Lily Elsie stamp  plate.  At the time of receiving the plate the mailing envelope lay unopened for weeks but once opened I certainly made up for lost time as I found myself unable to control myself from c reating a bundle of DT samples.  I still have quite a few samples to share with you but for today it is one card.
The card was made along the lines of the tags which were the first samples I shared, where I made my absolute favourite backgrounds, no it wasn’t a Gelli print, I didn’t have a GP at that time!  It is where I build up layers of stamping in-between layers of paint and text.
The true colour of this card is a very muted pink, a barely there pink with hints of grey.lynnemoncriefflilyelsiecardI wanted minimum embellishments on the card as I was interested in keeping Oxford Impressions stamps as the focus of which I used several on the background.  In the main they are French postal marks, French script and words.DIGITAL CAMERALily Elsie has appealed to me for quite some time so you can just imagine how excited I was when I learnt that Suzanne had created a stamp plate consisting of three beautiful Lily Elsie stamps. I didn’t use any of the sentiments which are also included but I have used on samples I’ve shared previously and ones still to share. DIGITAL CAMERANew Lily Elsie samples are on hold for the time being as this past week I have, finally, found myself in Halloween mode, not a mood I find myself easily drawn to although I absolutely appreciate other crafters Halloween creations. However, my stained hands are evidence of fun with various baths and surrounded by various bits of this and that air drying so that I can use them in my Halloween DT samples.
In the meantime, have a wonderful weekend. My next scheduled post is Sunday although I’ve not decided if I will try and squeeze in another post tomorrow.
Many Thanks for your visits and the wonderful comments which I’ve now read, for my Steampunk published art.
Oops, I should mention that the Lily Elsie stamps are available in the U.K. from That’s Crafty.

    Absolutely brilliant I love the beautiful stamp, wonderful background and how you have kept the focus on Lily.

    I commented on your Steampunk piece under the wrong heading sorry about that. Will pay attention in future that your comment button is at the beginning of each post and not at the end.

    Thank you for your comment on my Blog. You might like to pop back and see the box I have up at the moment.
    Have a Great Day
