For a Friend

I am always on the lookout for lilac stamps - they're a sentimental favorite of mine, and until this year I only had one option for lilacs.  When I saw this sweet set from Memory Box a couple months ago, it went right onto my wishlist, but it's taken me this long to get it home.  Here's it's first stamping:

For a Friend

supplies: white, lilac, and watercolor cardstock, Memory Box Spring Lilacs, VersaMark ink and white embossing powder, Spectrum Aqua markers and water, Simon's Stitched Rectangle die, Altenew Layered Plaid cover die, silk ribbon

I paired it with an Altenew cover plate that is supposed to make a plaid when paired with it's sister cover plate.  A friend cut me a few of each, and I'm hoarding them, so I only used this one - I thought it gave a Frank Lloyd Wright kind of feel.

Altnew, if you're reading this, a lilac would be a GREAT flower for your Build a Flower series..... Pretty Please?

  2. Love this Lin with the contrast of the graphic background against the organic shape(s) of the lilac
