Hola! from Senorita Gilli

Happy Wednesday everyone! It’s my turn to share my project with you all for our Ribbons and Pearls challenge at the House of Gilli. This is an easy one, so you really have no excuses. Come join us. You have until April 10 at 10:00 p.m. to enter.

I have chosen Senorita Gilli for my little piece of art. She was perfect to color with my Copics. And then I had a lot of fun adding all the layers. I have used the Elegant Flourishes Sizzix die for extra flourish around the flower and in the upper right hand corner part of the Parisian Motif circle. The other dies that I have used are Spellbinder’s in Scalloped Circles, Parisian Motifs, and Fleur De Lis Rectangles. And all of these (including Gilli) can be purchased from StampingScrapping. The most wonderful online merchant you will ever meet!

My flowers are colored with Copics and then painted with Creative Inspirations paint. I love this paint! It is transparent and has so much shimmer!

After you have entered over at House of Gill, and you used a Gilli, don’t forget to join and post to our groups on Yahoo (House of Gilli) and our photo gallery on Flickr (Gilli Gallery).
