Purple and Green for Let's Craft and Create Challenge #181 on the 5th of March, 2022


For this month's challenge at Let's Craft and Create Challenge Blog we have the optional theme of


Every time I think of purple, I think of lavender and it is one of my favourite flowers, so I have used one of the clear stamps from a set called Lavender by the wonderful Marcella at Power Poppy. The stamp I used is available as a digital stamp and is called Breathe in Life.

So here is the front of my card photographed outside in the sun in front of (you guessed it) one of my lavender bushes:

I also took a photo inside as the lighting is different:

Here is a photo of the inside of the card, taken outside:

I think I have stamped Breathe in Life on to X-Press It Blending card using Tuxedo Black Memento ink (but it could have been digitally printed - I found the image in my stash to be coloured!) then I have coloured with the following Copics markers:
  • can - N0, N1, N3, N5
  • lavender - V01, V04, V09, B63, B66, B69, V12, V15, V17
  • greenery - G14, G24, YG21
  • shadow - BV20, BV23, BV25

I have fussy cut the coloured image and adhered on the front of a Kraft card from Envelope Solutions.
Also from the same stamp set, I stamped the sentiment directly on to the card using Elderberry Memento ink.

Then on the inside of the card, I have used the lavender sprigs from the same stamp set and Elderberry and Bamboo Leaves Memento ink.

For the rhinestones (from KaiserCraft) I have coloured them with V09 and G14 Copics markers and then adhered to the card using Art Glitter glue.

Here is a photo of the lavender in the can and the lavender sprigs on the inside close up:

As usual, I have taken inspiration from the wonderful Monthly Classes and Bonus Classes from the awesome Alyce at Kit and Clowder.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:
