A Vision in Lilac!!


This week I have been putting ideas together to use the fab stamp from Stampotique, Moth Fab – well you either love it or hate it, there must be a weird side of me, because I really love her. The stamped image is quite dark and heavy, so I decided to use rich shades of plum and lilac as the theme. Her dress is coloured with Copics and Pro Markers and then embossed with black sparkle.


I made a matching envelope and used a heart stamp that followed the design through from the front of the card, to the inside, and the matching envelope. On the other side of the envelope I have stamped a swirl design around the edge and placed a heart with a bow in the corner.


The papers I have used are all Pink Petticoat, the main design paper being from Lola’s Boudoir set. Thanks very much for looking – let me know what you think of the stamp xxx
