I hope you aren't getting tired of my posts celebrating Flourishes 5th birthday because I am having a blast playing in them.
This card is for the "Sweet Celebrations" challenge where we are to use a focal image or sentiment that is sweet and lilacs to me are the sweetest!
I can remember growing up with lots of lilac bushes around our home and the sweet scent that was around each Spring, to this day the smell of lilacs take me back home.
And I have also been sharing cards for the Moxie Fab World Card Design Handbook challenges.
This one is called Gallon/Quart/Pint which is about finding balance in your colors. If you use 3 colors: use a bunch of one color, a little less of one and just a bit of the third.
As you can see my gallon color is the purples, with a quart of green and just a pint of yellow.....how fun was this!
I stamped this beautiful lilac bunch from Flourishes Lilac set after coloring it with Stampin' Up markers and filling in with Tim Holtz distress inks in peeled paint and milled lavender. Adding glitter from PT Glitz and a few purple gems. I also added some of the yellow glitter to the wings of the bee.
I hope you will stop by at both of these sites and take a look around and I am sure you will be hooked just like me.
