Lilac and Blue

Colour Create have a lovely colour combination challenge this week, Lilac and Blue. As the blog has reached 10,000 hits there is some fabulous blog candy to be won, including some fab Miss Anya stamps I really had to get cracking to get a card do to get an entry in before Sunday. This is my card, unfortunately without the additional option of ribbon and swirls (I thought they would be a bit to much on this card).

As you probably know, if you have seen any of my previous posts, I'm a real fan of Clarity Stamps and this is one of the three fab ones I bought at the NEC. I think she's so elegant, I'd love to wear an outfit like hers, not that I have the figure for it these I masked of the two edges and used my new rollergraph to add the leaves (I used a Versamark inkpad and some Detail embossing powder and then did some direct to paper with the lilac and blue inks to give a resist look). I stamped the image and coloured with the same inks and then matted onto lilac and then blue SU cardstock. I wanted a different shape card for a change, so cut a strip off the front edge of the card and added a strip of matching card down the side.

I finished by adding a sentiment which is by HOTP, a few crystals and Prima flowers from my stash.

Hope you like it. x
