The Lavender Lady

May I introduce you to the Lavender Lady.  Isn't she beautiful?  I got this image from Magic Moonlight.  Her dress was a little too pink originally so I tweaked her a bit in Photoshop.  She needed to be lavender for one of the challenges I entered.  I inked the pale lavender paper with Dusty Concord Distress Ink and used the same paper to make the flowers, inking their edges and misting them with water.  I'm really happy with the way this card turned out.  Thanks to Linda Robinson at City Crafters for the lovely sketch for this weeks challenge.
The card is being entered in the following challenges:

A Pocket Full of Posies #7--lavender and old lace
Charisma  Cardz #38--anything goes


Papers:  Recollections cardstock, Anna Griffin, K & Company Floral Dreams, Provocraft Mini Slab III
Image:  Magic Moonlight; leaves from Fred, She Said Paper Roses and Leaves digi set
Ink:  Dusty Concord  and Peeled Paint Distress Ink
Tools:  EK Success Retro Flower punches
Miscellaneous:  Kaisercraft pearls, Offray ribbon, lace from my stash, Wrights pearl trim

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!

  4. Lovely! You know that is my favorite shades right, I love how you could change the color of the dress for the lavender lady, maybe I should invest in Photoshop too (kind of costly!)
