More Lavender

Lavenders~Lilac~Purple Challenge

I was playing with some watercolour paper and Distress Oxides the other day, trying to follow a video tutorial. My effort didn’t really go as planned and certainly didn’t look anything like the tutorial, but it was with some purples. Once it was dry I wondered how I could use it but it still seemed to need more ink. I had a stamp set on my desk by GKD called Tiny Textures and I took the splash/splatter stamp and added some more ink to the initial piece. It filled in more of the area and I liked how it looked. While it was drying I stamped the lavender onto some scrap paper using Blueprint Sketch which actually dried more like the real flowers look. I fussy cut most of it out and glued into a small bouquet adding the ribbon to finish it. I added some lavender(ish) mirri card to the card front and glued the focal piece on top. Then I stamped the sentiment with another GKD set called Scripty Sayings cutting it as shown and adding some ink around the edges. I also brushed some perfect pearl powder over the inked panel for some shimmer and set it with a bit of water.

  1. The background turned out quite well with the addition of the spatters. Great job of fussy cutting. The lavender looks lovely with the sweet bow.

  2. All this needs now is a drop of lavender essential oil and it will be realistic. You did such an outstanding job on the bg that i hope to see more in different colors?

  3. This was supposed to use the lavender stamp wet over the dry inks to create an impression that would be white as the colour lifted off. Didn’t work and looked a mess. Tried twice and the other one isn’t good either. Will fix it eventually. I used more ink to give more colour and to cover up the mess. Worked well considering. Glad you like it.


  4. Thanks Gayle. Fussy cutting was the hardest part of this one. Did it while listening the evening news.
