For my first card I stamped the lilies in Dark Chocolate ink and coloured them with copics. I decided to add a pale blue background also with a copic marker, I like how this makes the white lilies stand out all the better. There's a wealth of sentiments in this set, and I added the sentiment 'Congratulations on your adoption' I have never had a set that contained that sentiment before! How neat!


For my second card I decided to try and see what the lilies would look like coloured in with white pencil on black cardstock. I stamped first with Gina K white pigment ink. I deliberately coloured up to just before the lines so that the detail wouldn't be lost. I like the look of this, but for my card I wanted to brighten up the image a little and so I double framed it with white borders. 

I cut my apertures with the stitched oval (large) and stitched rectangle (large) dies from the Gina K/Thermoweb range. I cut slightly smaller apertures with the double stitched oval (small) and stitched rectangle (small) dies and layered them in behind the white apertures to get a sort of frame, within a frame look. The green oval is Jellybean green and the rectangle is a piece of white cardstock that had been sponged with Jellybean Green and Blue Lagoon. Finally I inked up the sentiment in Fresh Asparagus and Blue Lagoon.

Our Incentive set currently is a cracking wee set called Happy Mail. Add these sentiment to the outside of your mailing envelopes, the back of cards, or use them as sentiments on your cards, this is a great addition!
