Lavender for Krafty Chicks

Hi.  I'm back again Guest Designing for Krafty Chicks

Since Nance offered the Guest Designer position and she had given me
this beautiful stamp set, I thought it was fitting to make a card with it
for this week's challenge.

Leanne is the challenge host and she's asking for

I placed the stamp in my MISTI and inked her up with Distress Markers.
I blended the flowers with a damp waterbrush pulling the ink to the 
center of the flowers and used a watercolor pencil to color the leaves.

I die cut a double oval frame and put a piece of vellum behind the 
smaller oval.

I thought it looked like a wedding card and didn't 
have any in my stash.  So I added the die cut love.

Hope to see you over at the

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.
