Lilac Lovely

While this card is another one heavy on white space, I actually had a lot going on with it!

This piece is another sample for the Lilac, Navy and White Rebel Challenge on RRD! I used my RRD Nature Notes set for this one with a little help from the Relish Reading and Beacb Babes full-size backgrounds.

I stamped the Sandy Beach background from Beach Babes in lilac ink and the Almanac Page background from Relish Reading with navy ink onto white paper. I sponged some additional lilac ink onto the background. I then stamped the woman with Tuxedo Black Memento onto one panel of white, one panel of plain lilac cardstock and onto the inked lilac panel. I colored the woman's head and neck on the white panel with copics and I cut the woman's coat out of the lilac cardstock. I layered both of these pieces onto the inked background and then trimmed and matted it. I added the sentiment and the panel to the white base card.

Stamps: woman and sentiment from Nature Notes, Almanac Background from Relish Reading, Sandy Beach background from Beach Babes (Rogue Redhead Designs)
Cardstock: Whisper White, Lavender Lace and Night of Navy (Stampin Up)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento); copic markers
Technique: paper piecing

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Great Impressions - Sentimental Journey

Scrappers Delight - Make Your Own Backing Paper (I did behind the image)

Allsorts - Layers (4 layers beyond base card with the paper piecing)

Hope you are the master of your fate today!  I know I am - it's my day off :)
