House work is done and 2 loads of washing finished and dried and i think i am going to have a bagel with cream cheese and a cup of tea after posting this card. its only taken me 10 mins to put this card together as i painted the lilac at Graces craft shop last Saturday and have wanted to make it into a card ever since. However i really wanted a few nights of chilling out so i have resisted any crafty urges every night last week and just come home, made the tea and then chilled before going to bed. So i am raring to go for two full crafting days as i have lots to catch up on. There is an exciting new launch coming up on the 25th may with Sara and i will start showing sneak peeks from Monday with a fab blog hop to take part in so look out for details.
ok so to my card, i love lilac and we used to have a lilac bush in our garden when i was little and i loved it. We often had spray cut off and put in vases in the living room. I have used the Lilac Paint Fusion stamp and paints white, dark blue, parma, green gold, brown and antique white. These are from sets 1, 3, Foliage and Neutrals. Although i do think i will be trying some new colours to get different results.
I have painted onto one of Sheenas rectangle mount boards and used some cream and blue matt emulsion that was in the garage. After painting i have edged the mount board in silver embossing powder and then used mirri card and white linen card. I'm not a big fan of mirri card but on occasion it comes out to just edge some mattting and i think it matches perfectly. I've then finished with a thinking of you sentiment, embossed in silver again and some lilac ribbon. The colour is a perfect match to the paint but i am wishing i had left it off now for a really simple look.
Hope you like it.
