The smell of lavendar
Bought some new lavender plants today for my new levelled garden and all I can smell is lavender on my hands, yes I have washed cheeky!! Anyway I think this aroma has affected me in my card making as I seem to be on a purple theme at the moment, well this first card was using one rub on transfer that I bought in a packet for 99p a bargain I think, mounted it onto white card and then carefully cut/ripped an oval shape from purple handmade paper, backed the card with some free downloaded paper and added a small peel off.
The second card I used some backing paper that my Mum bought for me ages ago, used 2 butterflies peel offs, mounted onto white card and started colouring them in. To try and "lift" the card slightly, I cut around the images of the flowers and I think it really complements the softer colour tone of the base card itself.
I haven't forgotten about the blog candy, and yes Lorraine you will have plenty of time to enter when you return from your travels.
