Pink Cat Studio - Enchanted Lily "Sneak Peak Day 1"

Please click the photo for a larger view

Thanks for stopping by and you've come at a great time as it's Day 1 of the sneak peaks for Pink Cat Studio Enchanted Lily. I bought this Kaiser chipboard castle back in September at Ally Pally and knew it would be perfect to showcase these gorgeous stamps. The first character i'm showing you is Leaping Lily which you may have used as a download for a recent PCS competition but you know if your like me the downloads are great but I do like my rubber!

I covered my Castle using these beautiful Imaginisce Fairest of the All papers. The edges were then sanded and chalked with VersaMagic Pixie Dust. Isn't that a cute name for a chalk! As you can see I added lots of tiny flowers, buttons and pearls around my door. The ribbon used for the window ledges is also by Imaginisce.

Lily is coloured with a mixture of Copics and Prismacolor pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend. The gems on the turrets are from ELC. To finish off I tied lots of co-ordinating ribbons to the book rings. You can see there is another cutie peeking through the window but you will have to wait until tomorrow to see pages 1 & 2 ;-)

Don't forget to check the links to see the fabulous work from the rest of the Pink Cat Design Team which can be found to the bottom right of this post. We also welcome our Guest Designer Suzanne Dean for this release. I'm off to look now as I can't wait to see what they have created for this release!

Before I go I would like to thank Claire for passing the above award to me earlier in the week.

See you tomorrow and have a great Saturday!


EDIT: This Chipboard Fairy Castle Album is by Kaiser Scrapbook and is part of their beyond the page range.
