Bucket of Lavender

Hello Everyone!  It's been a while since my last post, a lot has happened at home; a death in the family, visitors, the funeral, Copic Certification, the Brisbane Papercraft Expo and my daughter's birthday.  I'm exhausted!  Today I finally ventured back into my craftroom and made a new card and picked this soothing bucket of Lavender which I thought was appropriate don't you think?  I had started colouring this image some time ago, but only today managed to finish it off.

I've used a base of purple bazzill and layered with white and another piece of purple cut with Spellbinders A2 Divine Eloquence.  Around this I've attached a piece of white ribbon.  The image is from Power Poppy's Lavender stamp set and has been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (V12, V17, G40, G82, G85, C1, C3, C5, E93, E95, W1, W3, YG91, YG93, B0000).  I've cut this with Spellbinders Floral Ovals and popped it up on X-press It Foam Tape.  Next I've stamped the sentiment from Lavender, cut it with Small Circle Nestabilities, airbrushed it with V22 Copic and popped it up on foam tape.  To finish I've added a white bow to the ribbon.

Stamps - Lavender (Power Poppy)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Purple Bazzill, White
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Copics, Spellbinders A2 Divine Eloquence, Floral Ovals, Small Circle Nestabilities, White Satin Ribbon, Bow Easy, X-press It Foam Tape.

Hey lady...been thinking about you and wondering how you are...my heartfelt sympathies about the loss in your family. I’m hoping you can take some space to just “dwell” and be comforted.

Your card is gorgeous! :)

Kathy, I was surprised to see your card considering all you've had going on. Stamping can be cathartic, but hard to find the time. This is so absolutely lovely, like everything you do. Love the layered die cuts and your beautiful coloring. Been thinking of you...
