Lavender Blue

I wanted to make a card for a friend of my sil who had some lovely things to say about the cards I send to my sil.  I was told she likes purples and lavenders.  Here's the card that I made for her:


supplies: white and black cardstock, Altenew Beautiful Day stamp set, Brilliance Pearlescent Lavender, Simon's Hydrangea, and MFT Lavender Fields, Hero Arts Green Hills and Grass inks, shaded lilac distress ink and marker, Hero Arts Old Letter Writing stamp, Winnie & Walter's Big, Bold & Happy cutaway

I stamped, inked and fussy-cut my flowers and sprigs, and then glued them to my card, which had been overstamped with the script partially wiped away first.  The card was also sponged lightly with the same shaded lilac distress ink.

Too much of a good thing?  Hope she likes it?  Thanks, as always, for stopping by!

You do such an amazing job with these fabulous Altenew floral stamp images, which is likely why a few of them have a new home in my craft room :-) Another stunner, Lin - your SIL's friend will love it!

Oh, Lin! This is a stunning card and so beautifully colored! Your SIL is going to love it completely! I love this image and have been holding back on it (with so many stamps yet unused), but you sure are an enabler! Beautifully done, and I especially love the touches of script. Gorgeous card, my friend! Warm hugs!
