L is for Lilacs

This week's hostess for the challenge on the Stampin' B's Design Team Challenge Blog was Vicky Gould.



When Vicky sent me a small pack of monograms, I thought “How sweet of her.” Little did I know that this was a prelude to Challenge #10 – to use monograms on our cards. Obviously, L is for Lois; but it’s also for Lilacs. Flourishes Lilacs Set is one of my favorites. I colored the image using a combination of Prismacolor and Copic markers, masked it, and stamped the Itty Bitty Backgrounds all around. A gift from a dear friend, the Nestabilities Labels Three made a perfect frame with some Creative Imaginations DP, matted on Wild Wasabi, pierced in the corners, and sponged all around with Perfect Plum. I chose one of the smaller “Ls” in the monogram pack, stamped it in the center of one of the stamps in SU’s Think Happy Thoughts, and matted in Elegant Eggplant and Wild Wasabi.
