Scary!! Nearly time to change over to a March watermark, and a card using purples. I let my papers do most of the work, but was so happy to ink up my new Allium, since I don't have any lilacs :D.
A2 base. Papers are BG Eva.
I used real lace and a Fiskars Lace corner punch, plus a Linen stamp and one bronze eyelet, so I think I've covered a lot of the bases with this.
Linen stamped with Milled Lavender, then I cut the oval and stamped the flower while it was still in the die, as the stamp is actually a bit longer. Coloured it with Victorian Velvet and Peeled Paint, and sponged the edges with Peeled Paint. I recycled some lace that didn't look right when I first stuck it to the card into some liitle lace flowers and added some punched foliage finish it off.
It also sneaks in as a last entry for LoveFest A - Lace, Linen, Long-Stemmed, Ovals, Victorian Velvet ink,Eva paper.
