Lavender Mojo

Here's a card for Julee's Mojo Monday Sketch #43 and the Technique Challenge on SCS, which is to color with reinkers.

I love these new Annie LaPoint stamps from MFT. I think they're really pretty! First time inking this one up too.

The main image was cut out with the Coluzzle up to where the image met the edge, then I cut around the part of the lavender stems that were outside the oval. The main panel is popped on a layer of dimensionals, the Amethyst scallop oval is on a second layer, as is the punched sentiment.

Using my Stampin' Spots, I stamped just the top of the lavender image to get the flowers along the bottom of the card front as well as the inside panel. They're stamped in Mellow Moss and Amethyst.

Have to give a shout out to Silke for sending me the Oval Nesties! Thanks, girl! {smile}
