Hi everyone! We've had 50 degree weather here today. What a wonderful change from the last several weeks. I think spring is really on its way. And that is why I chose lilacs for my card project.
Lilacs are one of my most favorite flowers. They remind me so much of my mother who had 2 large lilac bushes in her yard. Each spring I would be sure to come by and snip several sprigs to put in a vase on my kitchen table. I could smell them as soon as I walked into the room. So I made this card for the color challenge at The Outlawz, where we were to use the colors of lavender, lime green and cocoa brown.
I used white card stock for my base card and layered it with cocoa brown. I added another layer of creme de menthe (my lime green substitute). I put this aside while I worked on my focal point.
The lilac branch is a digital image that I had and which I printed out on white and colored with Copic markers. The sentiment is from GKD Stately Flowers 7 and was stamped with Memento Espresso Truffle ink and embossed with clear EP.
With the artwork completed I cut and embossed my focal panel with Spellbinders Timeless Rectangles and as a last step, popped it on to my base card with dimensionals.
Thank you for visiting and come back again soon!
