Meet Lilleth

Check out this awesome Sweet Pea stamp from artist Teresa Sherman. This image is Lilleth. Isn't she stunning? I really wanted to highlight the gorgeous woman in this stamp.  I colored her face and hair in assorted color copic markers, then I did the background (the dotted areas) in WARM Greys and did the foreground (i.e. the flowers) in a monotone set of COOL Greys.   
It's hard to see on this image, but the black card stock is a shimmery metallic back, more of a metal glaze and a shiny metal.  The orange is actually a copper metallic (mica) cardstock.  I used all different sort of die cutters from Memory box to surround the image, but kept the all the same color, so even though it's "busy" looking, they blend together. Then I added a simple sentiment with a matching glitter tone "Forever."  I think the look on her face very much fits with that sentiment.
 
Here's a close up of the image:
The shop recently had several new digi stamps from Teresa Sherman.  She has the most beautiful lady stamps as well as some fun Halloween and gothic type images.  The store also sells many of her stamps in rubber stamp format.

I also entered this card in the Left of Center Creative Challenge.

Cheers, Holley
