Playin' with Lili of the Valley

Mom ordered some stamps & images from Lili of the Valley, and they've made a nice little stop at my house first! I couldn't resist playing with the stamps; they are so lovely and so much fun to color. And Mom, let's not forget to check out their 2011 Christmas sets (link will open in a new window)!

I just had to try my hand at the following challenges:I also tried my hand at an idea Mom shared some time ago: making a detachable charm out of Shrink plastic. As they say, if all else fails do as your mother told you in the first place! So this time, I sanded one side of the plastic before stamping and coloring. Actually, I stamped the image onto the smoother side with StazOn, and colored the rough side with Copics before shrinking with my heat tool. This is something I'll have to practice, but the result sure is cute! Click on the image to enlarge.
