This is my first upload so, I'm a little nervous!
I love purple and olive, in combination. The background of layer 1 is stamped with SU! stamps and Versamark on Lovely Lilac cardstock and then embossed with clear EP On layer 2, the dandilions and lace flower stamps were colored with SU! markers: Always Artichoke, Old Olive, Lovely Lilac, Elegant Eggplant and Lavender Lace; and then, the grass, leaves, etc. were drawn in on lime scrap and matted on Elegant Eggplant CS. The butterfly was stamped on a Lovely Lilac scrap with black craft ink then embossed with clear EP. Four small areas were"bleached" with Castaway refiller by Jacquard. ( Works like bleach but, no odor! ) Areas were versamarked, then PearlEx in Amethyst and Spring Green were added. A vellum strip with the printed sentiment was secured with 2 small square brads turned on the diagonal.
I enjoyed making this card, but not as much as seeing all the beautiful and clever member submissions each day! Thanks for looking! With my best to all,
