Whiff of Joy challenge #20 - Lavender and Lace

Oh my goodness, we're at number 20 already!! Where has the time gone? We have a delicious challenge this week (just up my street and no I didn't chose it lol) - Lavender and Lace.
woj-lavender-and-lace-1
I just love the new Spring stamps designed by Elisabeth Bell, and I do this this little poppet is my favourite of this release (but then I love Oakley just as much lol). I have used the Fall Grass accessory stamp, this has got to be the most useful stamp I own, it works with most images that I have, colours up so easily and is a perfect size. 

The papers are prints of Lilac blossoms but loved the mix of pale apple green with the lavender colour. The lilac panel I have punched out with the fab Martha Stewart Lace Doily punch then stamped the piece with a lace stamp (it's a huge stamp that I got off Ebay last year - it's unmounted with no maker sadly) and wisteria chalk ink.
woj-lavender-and-lace3On the inside I have once again carried the layout from the front through, and have cut one of the lilac blossom images from the papers. The sentiment is computer generated. Apologies for the pants pictures, that's what you get when you leave the photography to a man to do!!!

Recipe
Kneeling Willow and Fall Grass by Whiff of joy stamps coloured with distress inks and H2O's
Sentiment on the front is from an Anna Griffin set, inside is computer generated
Papers are a pad by Papercraft 4 You that I got as part of a huge set from QVC yonks ago
Flowers are a mix of Imaginisce, Prima and mulberry roses
Lace is from Dainty Supplies

Thanks for looking,

  1. This is just amazing! I think its so inspiring to see that you decorate all 4 sides of the card every time :) Lavender/Purple are my fave colors at the moment (probably cause I'm waiting for spring/summer so much) Card look FAB! Have a nice day. Hugs Ida

  15. Oh Bev, I am sitting here with my eyes full of taers chick. First I read about your precious Rosie. I am so so sorry chick. I know how it feels and it is no good anyone saying they are only animals cos they aren't. They are part of your family. I'm just glad that she found a loving home with you and that her life was happy. And when the time came, your love for her was so great that you did not let her suffer.

    And then I read the verse in this card. And soppy old sod that I am, well that finished me off. I say to anyone who has a mum to cherish and love her cos when she goes, there will be a empty space in your soul that will never be filled. You are not the same once you lose your mum.

    Anyway, your card is absolutely gorgeous chicksie. I love these colours - what's not to like about lilac!!! And the lace is gorgeous as well. I might have to have a go at this challenge now I saw this.

    Biggest hugs and loads of love xxxxxx

  60. Bev this is really gorgeous - stunning colouring and colorus. Can I ask .. when you use the grass stamp do you use masking, or cut out your girl image and place her on top?? I have just bought the grass stamp, but with it being so detailed I have found getting masking right really difficult (impossible actually lol!) - yours is so fab!
