Lili of the Valley DT - James and Daisy

Good Morning Everyone, 
Those of you who visit my blog will know that I love James the bear from Lili of the Valley. I was really happy when he reappeared in digital stamp format. The huge advantage of digital stamps is the fact that you can resize them to suit your project. With that in mind I decided to challenge myself to colour an A4 sized James and Daisy.
And here he is...
I printed him onto A4 card and coloured him with promarkers. I then framed him in a cream mount which is 20" x 16".It was quite a daunting prospect but once I got started, it was exactly the same as colouring a smaller version just using bigger strokes!
Here is a photo of the A4 print alongside a card I made earlier to give you an idea of the size. The card is 6" square.

I really enjoyed colouring this and it is now hanging on my daughter's bedroom wall! 

You can find James and Daisy Digi stamp HERE, along with lots of other gorgeous digital images at Lili of the Valley. I wonder which one I could try next?!

Thanks for taking the time to visit my little blog today
