Lavender

Lavenders~Lilac~Purple Challenge

Considering that purples and lavender are among my most favourite things you would think this theme would have been easy for me. That said, yesterday, when I made it, I had absolutely no mojo whatsoever so thinking about making a card was a challenge in and of itself. I had the outer die cut frame left over on my desk from another project and decided that it might work as a starting point. I also remembered I had this lavender stamp (red rubber type) from Impression Obsession so pulled it out to use. First I sponged the leftover frame with wilted violet ink and glued it to the lavender card front. I then used some text vellum paper gifted to me by a stamping buddy to stamp the image. I sponged green at the bottom and as much of the stems as I could and then added wilted purple to the top portion. Stamped it and liked the result so once dry I die cut it using the same type of die as the frame. Glued it on the angle and added the sentiment which is from a GKD incentive set. Added a few purple gems and called it finished. Not a bad result from a very uninspired mind.

  1. It is better today. Yesterday was one of those didn’t have enough sleep days with some pain thrown in. Got an appointment with the chiropractor for Saturday so hopefully he can fix things for me.

  5. I am so happy you like my card and thanks for the comment. Like so many people right now, my moods are a bit up and down. This virus upsets everyone in a big way. Thankfully where I live they have done a good job of bending the curve and things are improving a lot.
