If you haven’t checked your calendar recently, this Friday is the last day of Sale-a-bration 2019. You have 3 days to bring Lasting Lily into your craft room – don’t miss out!
It took me a while to fall in love with Lasting Lily. The images caught my eye from the beginning, but I struggled to get the image right. It wasn’t until I learned to use a spoon to create a “dry spot” on my ink pad that I was satisfied with the image. It’s worth the effort!
- Stamps: Lasting Lily, Crackle Paint
- Color palette: Whisper White, Smoky Slate, Basic Black, Petal Pink, Pear Pizazz
- Accessories: Petal Pink and Whisper White Variegated ribbon, Big Shot, Rectangle Stitched framelits, Watercolor pencils, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Lasting Lily coordinating framelits (sold out!)
I used the Daffodil Delight Watercolor pencil to add detail to the stamen on the lily – it was very easy to get just a hint of color. I also used the Calypso Coral pencil to define some of the edges and lines in the flower.
Prior to the arrival of the Stamparatus, I always bought my background stamps on wood blocks. I liked being able to reach up and grab them just as they were. Now I’m choosing clear mount stamps, and the Crackle Paint stamp is one of our new cling stamps. If you haven’t given them a try, you are going to LOVE them! Matter of fact, sometimes I don’t even take them out of the case. If I just need to ink a little part of the background stamp, I ink it up right in the case, place my card stock on the inked portion of the stamp, lift it up and then give the stamp a swipe with the Shammy and move on!
If you’re ready to place one last order before Friday, head on over to the Online Store. You won’t regret it!
