Now for my inspiration project for Forever Dark!  March is Anything Goes and the side theme was to be Sinister Easter but coz it's our last challenge the theme was dropped.

Our fabulous sponsor this month is

Lilleth and the Lillies

I had an absolute blast creating this piece and I'm very pleased with how she turned out.  I made a paper art project that is approximately 8 x 10 inches in size.  Her hair consists of a 3 layer cascade of fussy cut curls and the flowers consist of 1-3 layers of fussy cut and curled dimensional layers too.  The full image is matted onto colour coordinating cardstock and then onto black, the mats were cut with my Perfect Paper Layers tools

I printed Lilleth and Lillies out onto Neenah solar white cardstock and coloured her with Copic markers and highlights added with a white gel pen once the entire piece was completed.  I scanned the coloured image into Photoshop CS6 and printed her out 3 times.  I selected all the elements I wanted to layer and fussy cut out all the pieces which were then curled and adhered in place with a combination of Scotch Quick Dry adhesive and black pop dots. 

In the photo above you can see all the glorious curls!

 The collage photo above shows all the other layered areas - the 3 large Stargazer lillies, the bottom left Calla lilly and the floral-pearl  hair decoration piece.

Thank you for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!

  1. Oh Leigh!! Gorgeous!! Your layering of the image is AMAZING!! My very favorite thing to do. I LOVE this!!

  2. Stunning work and love the vibrant colours

  3. HAD to come comment here, too. This is stunning, Leigh! Those curls are especially amazing! Fabulous colors. Total PERFECTION! I'd be happy to take it off your hands any time. xxD

    1. Thank you so much for your kind compliments Donna, truly appreciated :0)

  4. This is amazing, and right up my creative alley. My printer doesn't produce such vibrant copies, especially on Neenah. What printer are you using? I'm ready for a new one, but haven't settled on which one yet.

  5. I have to say a huge thank you for sharing your art on kit and Chowder. I was racking my brains to find the perfect image for my daughters 18th birthday card and I was scrolling through my facebook today and she loved you image so I have finally found the one lol Hopefully I can make it look half as good as yours for her .XX

  6. AMAZING card, Leigh! Love the depth and 3D effects your created with layering those carefully fussy cut pieces. Stunning!! XOXO-Shari
