Melancholy Moppets Lillianna

Good Evening Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Today I am showcasing my favourite of Heather Valentin's new range of digi's which you can only purchase here.  The range is called Melancholy Moppets and this cutie is Lillianna.  As soon as Heather sent me this image I knew exactly how she would look and what colours to use.  You can visit Lacy Sunshine to see Heather's selection of fabulous digi images.

Now Lillianna was someone's precious doll and when they moved home the little girl left her behind. Poor Lillianna has been a lonely little doll for such a long long time which is why she is so melancholy.


8 x 8 cream scalloped card
First layer is silver pearlescent card
Second layer is printed from My Craft Studio Quintessential Garden CD
Off white lace has been wrapped around this card and then matted onto the pearlescent card.
I printed Lillianna onto Neenah card and cut out using Spellbinder Rectangle Fleur de Lis die
I have used Copic Ciao Pens in blue violets and greys then distressed around the image with PanPastels in grey
To finish off I have added 5 flowers which worked perfectly for the theme I was going for and added black pearl gems to the centre, I also added a silver filigree corner.

Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxx
