Lavender Meadow


Sharing a card today that I made for a colour/inspiration challenge 
at Splitcoaststampers based on the palette and photo below:


The background is stamped with various Color Box inks and 
then stamped the flowers with WPlus9
Fresh Cut Florals - love this set!  The grass is stamped with 
Inspired by Nature by Stampin Up.
Next I sprayed the whole thing with water and layed a paper towel over 
it to lift off some of the colour and soften it.  
I then stamped more grass with a bit more definition.
The sentiment is from Sentimental Favorites by Flourishes.
The white sequins have a lavender sheen so 
they seemed just the right finishing touch!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
