Lilac Blooms

This is a different easel card that I made last night also, for my mother-in-law. Her colours as you can probably tell are lilac and purple.

I was a little nervous colouring this card as it was the FIRST TIME EVER USING SANSODOR with blending stumps! I think I did pretty good for my first attempt though and I was really pleased with the finished result. I am sure that Gwen will love it as Steve was really pleased with it too.

The image is from Lili of the Valley which I stamped onto plain white card. I then added a strip of white card behind the image which I stamped using a rather lovely butterfly stamp that my mate Sarn gave me a while ago, I think it's Stampendous, but she would know for sure??? I'm not very good at remember names am I? The 'sending sunshine' sentiment is Hero Arts and so is the little dragonfly next to it, which I stamped three times and then added the little dashes with a black pen freehand. I added the ribbon and the flowers and then put all the layering together. Looks pretty good I think and, as I said before, I was really pleased with how the Sansodor looked when I had finished colouring the image with my coloured pencils.
