Loving Lavender!!!

I am in love with lavender...the plant, the fragrance, the color. I also love Lockhart stamps and have had this one for ages. I stamped two images on watercolor paper with black Stazon, then colored with the new Koh I Noor pencils (not much room for shading here), popped them up on dimensionals and while the one paper looks blue it's actually two shades of lavender and a scrap of lavender paper. The other is a green you might recognize from the little chipboard dress below. I also added some dots of Purple Stickles on the lavender on this one. The ribbons make it. Sometimes, you can make a little simple card like this and one embellishment will bump it up from OK to WOW. I hear lavender is good in ice cream too!?!?

Super pretty. I just love lavender. It's also called rabbit tobacco. Smells too good for that though! Lvoe the softness of your colours. Makes me want to go out in the garden! :0)
