Lilac and Sage

Lilac and Sage still a passion of mine after being the colours of our wedding so I decided to make a lilac and sage card using some flowers I had made for our wedding album. Amazing Tim Holtz inks of course and beautiful diecuts (why have I never discovered these before?) I love raiding the paper stash and finding beauties like this gorgeous art deco style picture.....And as I don't own any of the inks yet (the lilac and sage were done at a workshop with my sister-in-law) I used my tried and tested and still loved chalks for that shabby vintage look. As a nice link to my wedding the pearls were leftovers from my making my own tiara....just a shame I never wore it in the end! But it was a nice learning challenge as always, to teach myself something new - I always love to learn new things

I am dipping my toe into the sea of blog challenges for the very first time..........
