Lilac Blossoms

Hi, Diane with you today!

It is lilac time here in Michigan and I have to admit they are one of my favorites in the Spring. Notice I said one of, I have a love for most flowers.

I used the new Ken Oliver Watercolored Memories paper
for my background. This paper is two sided, with a light watercolor, as I have used on one side and a darker watercolor on the other. It is so gorgeous!

I stamped JustRight Lilac Blossoms with Versamark on  Heavyweight Vellum, then sprinkled with Sparkle 'n Sprinkle White Fine Detail embossing powder. I heat set it, then I  flipped the paper over and colored with my markers. The darker, bolder colors work best for this. Just make sure to color on the reverse side of the stamped image.

I fussy cut it out, which I might add was very easy to do.
Mounted it on Spellbinders Floral Ovals, which was cut from Pearlized Esse White Metallic paper. Both the  image and the oval were popped up with both sizes of Joy! Foam Pads, large and small.

The sentiment is part of the Lilac Blossoms stamp set. It was stamped with Seedless Preserves Distress Ink.
