Lilacs and Butterflies

Hi friends.  I'm on a flower kick.  Digging out some of my flower stamps from a long time ago.  Beautiful stamps that have long been neglected.

This wonderful Lilac stamp is so pretty and the shading on the stamp makes coloring it up a dream.
The Butterfly and the Lilac are all one stamp.

Stamps - Lilac and sentiment - Serendipity Stamps
Embossed background - Sue Wilson Creative Expressions
Oval Die - Spellbinders

Ran a blue dye ink pad over the embossed background pressing
lightly.  Sponged the sentiment with the same blue ink.

Can't wait for our Lilacs to bloom, they make the house smell fabulous!

I love lilacs, Sue, and can't wait for them to blossom in my backyard. Your card is so gorgeous! There are so many older stamps that look as good today as they did when they were new, and this is one of them. Nice work!

Wow! Your lilac image is fantastic, Sue, and the colors are really beautiful! Is it fun to go thru your "old stuff" and use some neglected beauties? I find it very fulfilling. Such happiness when using older tools or forgotten images. I especially like your use of the blue around the pretty lilac image! hugs, de

Hi Sue,
Love your lilac card. And it's mine!
Just looked up your blog today. What took so long?
I ordered from House Mouse a few days ago.
Didn't realize they were your sponsor. I still love
House Mouse. Happy stamping. Terry
