Swan Lake

I adore this Lili of the Valley stamp, Little Ballerina. Isnt she just the cutest thing ever??!!! I love her for so many different occasions, just adorable.
I followed the sketch over at Lili of the Valley for the layout of this card. I used my new Prima Melody paper pack. I am totally LOVING prima's new paper collections. I picked up four of them, and just cant seem to get enough of them. The papers are all so pretty!!!
I added a white doily behind the semi-circle papers for some added contrast. Love the white behind all the pink, really makes it all stand out.
I colored this doll with copics:
Skin - E000, E00, R20
Hair - Y11, E31, YR20
Shirt - W1, W00
Skirt - R85, R83, R81, RV10
Ballet Slippers - W5, W3, W1, W00
I used a watercolor technique on the background, which I LOVE. She seems to just pop right off the page.
I cut this cutie out with my Labels 10 nestabilities die.
I added lots of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. Pink 25mm roses and 15mm mini roses in two toned pink. I added branches in pink cardstock punched with my Martha Stewart punch. My Martha Stewart Monarch punch was also used for the butterflies. I then added diamond stickles to all the flowers, butterflies, and the branches for some sparkle. White pearls were the final touch!
