Lily cards #kncswap

I recently took part in a swap over at Kit and Clowder.  You got a partner and you sent each other a card.  I did two swaps as Alyce needed an extra NZ based swap... and guess what... it was my friend Suna!  How fun was that!  My other swap was to the USA.  For both my cards I chose to use a lily stamp from Altenew.  The flower gave me lots of scope for colouring.

Here's the card for Suna

I started by using a Tim Holtz burlap stencil and some soft grey Altenew ink to added a bit of texture.   I stamped my lily onto some smooth white card and then used some Copic markers to colour it.  I fussy cut it and then cut an oval frame to highlight the lily.  The sentiment is from Altenew "More than words" set.

Here's Annette's card

I made a background by stamping Altenew Rustic Linen in soft sand coloured ink.  I used a mixture of Copic markers and Altenew markers to colour my lily.  Added some white dots.  Sentiment is from the same sentiment set as my first card.  I added a stripe of metallic washi down one side.   I was inspired by a lily I saw at Moana on the edge of Lake Brunner on my West Coast adventure

As this stamp came as a freebie with my latest purchase from  Altenew, I am adding this to the challenge at The Flower Challenge.

And here is a picture of the stunning card I received from Suna.

Isn't it a stunner!

Annette has told me she has sent hers to me but it is still coming.

Thanks for stopping by.
