Hello and thanks for stopping by today! We are in the last stretch of Sale-a-bration for this year. I have truly enjoyed working with these amazing new products to bring you some creative projects. The benefits of SAB are the best of the season, and best of all is the offer to get two free stamp sets with the Starter Kit. Lots of Lavender is a FREE stamp set that is not going to be available after March 31st. I have enjoyed it the most of all of the SAB offerings and will be sad to see it be discontinued. Here’s another project to inspire your use of this amazing stamp set.

Lots of Lavender stamp set
Each project I have created with Lots of Lavender stamp set has been an engaging endeavor. Whether it’s watercolor pencils or watercoloring with a brush, it’s been a joy. The large bunch of flowers is a nice sized image to create an easy focal point but my favorite is the small floral spray. It works well to fussy cut and feature in many ways.
To accompany the large bunch of lavender are a second set of stamps to create the 2-step stamp process. First step is to stamp the outline and second step is to stamp the inside area of the outlined image. Another way to use these “filler” images is to give the general look of a shape. In today’s project, I first wet the paper with the brush of an Aqua Painter. Using the large leaf filler stamp in green ink, the ink at once disburses and gives a loose watercolored look. Add more water and the looser the look. The loose looking flowers are created by using the tiny stamp with two dots, stamped in a cluster on a wet area of the paper.
Here is a list of supplies I used to make this card project. Links are here that you can click to get product info and purchase items, at no additional cost to you, as well. Thank you for your support with your purchase.
Having more ways to create a focal point on your project can make a project work for you. I hope you like this project and will come back to visit often! Thanks for stopping by today.
