Over the weekend, I fell in love with this sellabration set used with the soft subtles color family. I was using up some scrap papers and ribbons and decided on this color combo: apricot, celery, and lavendar lace - love how soft and spring-y looking these all came out! On one card, I used pale & perfect plum scraps - but really didn't like it as much as the lavendar lace. I rarely use lavendar and was so happy with the results.
I embossed all the images with versamark and detail black embossing powder and then colored them in with the coordinating watercolor crayons. On the lavendar ones, I used eggplant to highlight. I went over some of the images with the same colored markers to add more depth. I also chalked the background to give a soft shading around the flowers.
These cards are thank you's to some special people in my life.
Thanks for taking a closer look!
