Lil Lylah

Hello dear blogging buddies,
I've been trying to get my craft space into working order,
which can be tricky, as I am realizing
I still don't have enough storage or workspace,
but with things getting put away and sorted through,
I have access to a lot more of my goodies,
so without further ado,
here is my project for
Tickled Pink Stamps
The Boss Lady set us Pink Ladies a colour challenge
of Pink Cream/White and Black/Brown,
so I chose the darling Lylah to work with:

More info to come,
Lil Lolita's can be purchases at

ASFOS wants to see cute and girly, check.

Phew, had to run to work, yes, I am always late there too...
I've used K & Co. papers, distressed them all with scissors and brushed curdoroy, the sentiment is from an Inkadinkado Brenda Walton clear pack, I've coloured Lilah in distress inks and cut her out and placed her on top of another image which was distressed in old paper and Inkadinkado swirls stamped in sepia Archival Ink were added then stickled in diamond. I couldn't help but be inspired by the doiley wonderwork I saw on Iris's blog, so gorgeous, thanks for the ideas!! I distressed the fabulous square doiley from Sue in tattered rose, then hit the edges with brushed curdoroy and then stickled the edges, such a lovely effect!! And the sewing round the edge just to finish things off means that my sewing machine and I are on speaking terms again, hooray!!!

It is good to get things simi-organized, I haven't been able to use my clear stamps in ages, it was great to get to them with ease, the sewing machine has it's own spot now, things are coming along in the craft room!!

Well, that about catches us up on details,
Take Care, and if you fancy sweet paper projects,
I made a Magnolia Muffin delight, just posted it!!

I can't beleive that Kellie. The funny thing is I saw her hint for your card as a Birthday card for her while I was looking to see if you had a spot that you sold your cards on. I just love this one & was woundering if you were selling it? I just love how your coloring turns out. I haven't tried the ink coloring yet. I'm still trying to get the Copics down.
