Lawnscaping FB Inspiration Team MAY Blog Hop

Hello Lovelies! Welcome to another Blog Hop brought to you by the Lawnscaping FB Inspiration Team sponsored by Spectrum Noir.

This month we are inspired by Purples and Cool Grays.  You should have found your way to me by the fun and talented Isha!

Here is my card for this month's hop!




For my card I used the "Dream" mini stamp set from Lawn Fawn.  I first stamped out 3 of the larger feathers and two of the smaller feathers all in VersaMark, and then I coated it in silver embossing powder.  I used my Milwaukee heat tool to heat set the embossing powder, and then it was time to add some pretty purple colors to my background.  I used Distress Inks in Shaded Lilac and Dusty Concord - and my mini ink blending tool and blended the two colors onto my background.  Once I was done and happy with my results, I used my mini spritzer bottle and sprayed water in my hand and flicked the water with my fingers on my Distressed background to give it some texture. I then added Wink of Stella to my feathers for some shimmer, and stamped my sentiment "You Inspire Me"  from the set Flutter By in VersaFine Onyx Black Ink.  I added my main panel to a scalloped frame cut from the Femme Frames by Mama Elephant, and adhered both of those pieces to a Blue Violet card base.  To finish everything off, I added some PPP sequins.  



Hope you are enjoying the hop so far!!  It is time for me to send you off sweet Lenny!

See you soon!
