I have recently discovered Lili of the valley stamps and have fallen in love with them. Such cute images and very affordable. This one is coloured , for the main part, using Tim Holtz distress ink. I dabbed the colour on using a make up sponge. You get a really soft effect on the colour this way. I have used pens for her socks and shoes as those areas needed to be more precise. Distress inks are probably at the top of my favourites list and have been for a long time.
Flowers are a must on any project. I feel a bit lost these days if I don't add any. A few of my other favorites that I have used are: lace, stick on pearls, the colour purple and buttons. I have more favorites, but I couldn't fit them all onto one project :o)
