Lavender and Lace

That's the theme this week at the Shabby Tea Room.   Here is my take on it; I decided to make a little posey of lavender, wrapped in lace:


I started by stamping the circle doily in Versamark and embossing it in white powder on white cardstock cut into a label shape.  Then I sponged on tea dye distress ink and overstamped the music background in vintage photo distress ink.  On the purple cardstock I stamped the flourish background in dusty concord.  After attaching the label to the card, I then stamped the flower sprig on white cardstock using markers to color the stamp, and spritzing before stamping.  These were cut out and loosely attached  to give a bit of dimension, adding some punched fern sprigs and the ribbon.  The sentiment was stamped and edged with dusty concord.


Supplies: white and purple cardstock, Hero Arts CG168 Circle Doily, CG222 Music Background, CG119 Flourish Background, CL447 Beautiful Peacocks (sentiment), Delta 2875F Solidago Sprig, versamark in and white embossing powder, tea dye, vintage photo, dusty concord distress inks, Marvy markers, punched ferns, purple grosgrain ribbon
