I came across some great inspiration for a card today at the Inspired By blog. After seeing Laurels inspiration photo I just had to run to my craft desk as soon as I could to make this!
I didn't have a lilac stamp but I did find this Penny Black brush hydrangea stamp that I inked up with my Tim Holtz distress markers and spritzed with water to blend. I masked it and then stamped it again to look a little less lonely. I cut it out and found some great washed wood paper to put behind it. I stamped the sentiment (Unity Stamp Co Botanical Bliss) in Staz-on on vellum. I think that little area is missing some kind of embellishment but until I can find the perfect one I'll just leave it alone.
Entering this into the Inspired By #115 challenge. Thanks for a great bit of inspiration and a happy memory to fill my head today!
Distress Markers used: Spun Sugar, Dusty Concord, Seedless Preserves, Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss.
