She loves lavender like I do, and flowers....just like me. ;) So color is a given but the design, I always struggle with. For this background, I very lightly inked an old HA background stamp called Misty Garden Pattern. I purposely inked it so lightly as to not really see it so the focus could be on the mums. The mum stamps are from THIS set. I colored the mums with my copic markers, and free-hand illustrated the stems. Thought it would be fun to perch the mums on stems. The leaves were pre-made.
I matted the stamped background onto purple cardstock and did some layering with a patterned paper and the rest is pretty straightforward.
Are you finished with Christmas preparations? I'm almost done with my shopping for family. I'm happy I made some Christmas cards this year and actually sent some out. Oh my! A total of 82 handwritten and hand stamped cards, world record for me, but I'm glad I took the time to just get it done! ;) Have a wonderful week!
