Love Letters

Lavender is my favorite color and it means romantic to me. When I see the "Love Letters" challenge (CFC88) from CAS-ual Fridays this week, I just want to make a lavender love card. Here is the challenge:

And this is the card I made:

This card may not look like clean, but it is simple for me (LOL). I just applied three different colors of Distress Ink Pads and spritz with Perfect Pearl water to make the background. Then, I stamped the lavenders on the background with light green ink pad. I used Inktense watercolor pencils to draw the lavenders with purple on flowers and green on stems. I brushed the water brush on the flowers and stems to make a watercolor effect. I also cut out two lavenders with die cuts and attach on the background to make a dimensional effect. The "LOVE" letters were die cut letters from Memory Box. After I die cut the letters with white cardstocks, I applied the white enamel accents from Ranger on the letters. After the letters are dry, I glued them on the top right corner to finish the card. Here is a closer look of the letters (love it!):

Cardstocks: PTI (white)
Stamps: Papertrey Ink.
Ink Pads: Distress Ink Pads
Dies: Papertrey Ink. (lavenders), Memory Box (letter dies)
Others: Perfect Pearls, Inktense watercolor pencils, water brush, white enamel accents

Thank you for visiting my blog.
