Yep, I took a couple of liberties. First, I added both green and white. Then, I took the color lavender a little loosely. Although, honestly, it is not quite as bright of a purple as it is in this scan (nor is the background a bright blue color, but a instead it is a muted purple). In fact, the entire card is much more muted, subtly varied, and shimmery than it is in this picture.
The basics behind the card are very simple. First, I used the original Dreamweaver Embossing Paste with LJ 888 Hydrangea stencil on a beautiful Little Yellow Bicycle grey paper. When it was dry, I painted the paste with Twinkling H2Os in Periwinkle, French Lilac, and Snapdragon for the flowers. For the leaves, I used Pebbles Pearlescent chalks in green and then layered on Twinkling H2Os in Olive Vine for shading. I stamped a piece of white with a TPC Stamp and Black Soot Distress Ink. I then distressed it with Weathered Wood Distress Ink. After that, I just had to assemble it.
This is the card that I could have easily given to my mother for her birthday last week. That is what it reminded me of. I just absolutely love the sentiment and how it goes with the gorgeous Hydrangea stencil. In case you can't read it, the sentiment goes: "If I had a flower for every time I thought of you, I would walk in my garden forever."
I really enjoyed the lavender and grey challenge. Thank you, Pam.
