Painted lavender scene

I’ve used Painted Lavender for these cards but the colours are not really lavender, all the same the tall spires of flowers work well in the scenes I’ve created.

I created the first card for this week’s Global Design Project colour challenge #gdp429 . Perhaps not three colours you would put together for a floral card but I really like them, especially stamped off for a more delicate feel.

I started with a deckled rectangle of white cardstock and used a blending brush to add some Grey Granite to the background, then stamped the greenery in Lost Lagoon (stamped off once or twice). The flowers stamped in Poppy Parade are also stamped off once or twice, it was important to keep the colours light to suit the image. Lastly a sentiment and some butterflies were stamped.

I embossed a strip of Lost Lagoon using Timeworn Type and added this to the Grey Granite card base under the stamped layer. Two of the butterflies have been decorated with Festive Pearls, just enough to add a little texture to the card.

The colour scheme of the second card is Boho Blue, Lost Lagoon and Berry Burst. I love how the background created with a blending brush looks like a cloudy sky.

So many colour combos would work with this style of card, keeping the flowers in one colour or choosing two or three. I hope you agree, it is such a pretty way to use the Painted Lavender stampset.

Below you will find product links for all the items used, the links take you to my online Stampin' Up! store and to show my appreciation for your order, if you use the current month's host code, I will send you a thank you card and a small gift.

Thanks for looking,
