Water Lily Skiing

Hehe! Here's an oldie but a goodie. It's a stamp that I've had on my wish list for sooooo long....and I finally got it. Whoo-hooo! I love it! Ahhh, yes, it's the little things that make me happy. :)



Stickles were added to the butterfly, water, and lily. The Spellbinders fair isle pendant is up on foam tape. The image was stamped twice, I cut out the butterfly and front part of the lily from the second image, colored those and popped them up on foam tape. Here's a close-up of the dimension...



Hope you have a really great day!

Denise, this is so amazingly adorable! It reminds me of a Disney cartoon my guys watched when they were little, "The Rescuers". The mice were trying to save a little girl "Penny". They got in a leave and a dragonfly "Evinrude" was their boat motor. This is a bit different, but the concept is the same . . . just love it, so, so adorable!
