Beautiful Lily

I'm hooked!! LOL!!! I LOVE the colors for Kristina's color challenge today and I just LOVE this Lily image that will be available from Treehouse Stamps on Friday!! So rather than being productive around the house, I decided to make another card!! Actually when this idea came to me I was doing the dishes!! LOL!!!
I stamped the lily in Versamark and heat embossed it with black detail embossing powder. I cut the image out using my oval Nestabilites. I then colored the buds and leaves with my Certainly Celery marker, with a paint brush I painted the entire image (including the buds and leaves) with my Angel Wings Shimmerz. Purdy!!! I wish you could see the shine!!! While that was drying I cut out the Basic Gray layer with the next size oval Nestabilites and the black with my scallop oval Nestabilites. The base card is Papertrey White Select, I cut a layer of Papertrey True Black, Basic Gray and Papertrey White Select. I cut a slit in the image layer and ran a piece of Basic Gray Taffeta ribbon around and attached the image layer. I made the fun bow (love these bows, they look SO nice!!) and added the small Kaiser Black Pearls. Finally I punched out the photo corners in True Black.
Thanks for stopping by again!!!
