monochrome and sweet lilac flowers

Well it is that time of month again when the new Sweet lilac Flowers challenge is launched. This month it is monochrome.

For this challenge I decide to go with purples and do an ombre' background. I used the matte side of centura pearl and inked it using dusty concord, seedless preserve, victorian velvet, shaded lilac and milled lilac distress inks. I spritzed liberally with water and dried with kitchen roll after a few seconds. Then I dried it well with heat tool.

Using the free stamps from issue 16 of creative stamper, I stamped the swirly leaces in black archival twice and clear embossed. I stamped sentiment from set in black and again clear embossed. I then stamped the musical notes randomly using distress inks. The white patches were achieved by inking versamark through the fading spots stencil by Tim Holtz and embossing in white. I then highlighted the flowers with a white pen. I matted and layered the topper and stuck it down on 7x7x base card.

This left quite a gap so I added some purple ribbon from my stash. Then I tied a triple bow with twine and embellished with some matching Sweet lilac flowers.

I hope you like my creation and please do join us over the Sweetlilac challenge and don't forget there is a box of flowers up for grabs, Theresa xx
