Spring Lilacs


Hello! I used Power Poppy Digital stamps French Lilac and Sentiment from Geraniums Digi  for this card.   I water colored the Lilacs printed on water color paper with Distress Ink Stormy Sky, Broken China,  Forest Moss, and Brushed Corduroy. Added a hint of lavender with Hero Arts Water Marker.  I fussy cut the Flower and attached with foam tape to an embossed layer of a Pattern Paper from Our Daily Bread designs Shabby Rose Collection The sentiment printed on the same paper was cut with Nesties circle die and matted with a Circle of Green CS. The Card Base is GKD Fresh Asparagus CS.  Finished with Green Raffia Ribbon.
Other supplies used: Red Glaze Pen and Glossy Accents on ladybug, Cuttlebug EF Divine Swirls.

Beautiful, Theresa! This lilac is one of my Power Poppy favorites. I'm especially fond of the quote, as well. I have it on a plaque in the garden. Cutting out your image is a great way to be able to mount it on an embossed background, which I also love. Your water coloring is just lovely. Thank you for joining us in our Cut it Out Power and Spark Challenge at Power Poppy!
