Are lilacs still blooming where you are? Such a heady fragrance. My Mom wore lilac cologne when I was little and you know how they say scents trigger memories... well, this time of year I'm continually reminded of her. So, in her memory I've made this card.
I've used Power Poppy's digital stamp, Lilacs and Lemons. The clear set that held this image is retired and sold out, but it lives on in digital. You can find more in the French Lilac digi set. Each are currently only $2.99. Print large or small, your choice.
I've printed on watercolor paper and colored with Copics. The background is stenciled. In the original drawing this arrangement sits on a cloth napkin with only one lemon. However, I gave it a different impression -- not digitally, but by hand. The second lemon in the lower right is actually a corner of the napkin. I colored it yellow, penciled in a few dimples and, voila, lemon! I also hand drew a few florets in that corner. I'm sure I wouldn't dare try more than that!
I don't own or use a lot of stencils, but I'm very fond of the few I have. This one is called Tricot, by Carabelle Studio.
Thank you for spending a little bit of your day with me. I'll wrap this up with some links for you to check out:
